i feel that in the beginning of the poem she compares the life of a young
girl and then of a women.she says that,she has finished the so called
duties of a wife but as a women she feels that she is the emperor now and
she feels safer than before.she says that tells about the pain undergone by
the young girls and she refers the domestic life as an eclipse.she says the
one suffers would feel the pain but who see it from outside think it as
comfort. she ends the poem on a sarcastic note that its better not to
compare things and she says to stop she being a wife.

Well,for me I PERCEIVE THAT EMILY WANT US TO UNDERSTAND THAT ONCE YOU
ENTERED ANOTHER STAGE OF BEING A WOMAN,YOU NEED NOW TO BE MUCH RESPONSIBLE,
MUCH SERIOUS AND MUCH STRONGER THAT YOU MUST FORGET THE ATTITUDE OF BEING A
GIRL WHOM EVERY WOMAN ALREADY UNDERGONE THIS STAGE...SO STOP TO BE IMMATURE
FOR YOU ARE NOW IN A COMPLICATED AND THE HIGHEST STAGE OF BEING A WOMAN!

My feeling is that Emily may be mocking someone who is newly married and
perhaps has "sniffed" at Emily, but that in fact, she is deeply jealous and
does understand that being married "eclipses" girlhood. She no doubt did
long for the state of marriage where she could be the Tzar of her own
household and get away from her father.

This poem is about an uneasy-contradictory feeling of a young woman who is
turning into a woman, especially a wife that seems "safer and more
comfortable", but stopping her from becoming a full human being with no
self empowerment and self identity anymore. That's why she calls the
marriage as an eclipse--though a soft one because of her uneasy (read
unsatisfied) but culturally obligated feeling on marriage. Basically, she
is not satisfied with the marriage life; and that's why she keeps comparing
(though she says 'why compare?') herself from the beginning to the end of

It's amazing how this poem can be interpreted so many different ways. All
three previous comments are completely different and mine is different
still! I believe Dickenson is playing feminist. She is saying it is better
to be "Woman" rather than "Wife." Once you make this realization, you will
see things as differently as the dead see life on earth. However, she ends
in a cynical tone: With independence comes pain, so it is natural for women
to stop at "Wife."

I studied this poem in class and Emily Dickinson is not finding security
with becoming a woman, but insecurities. She does not want to be a wife or
a woman and puts these words in quotes because they seem foreign when
comapred to herself. This relates to her family life also because her
father did not expect a woman to become of anything and Emily rejected her
mother's identity insisting in her poems that she is an orphan upon
herself. In this poem she fantasizes that she did enter in some kind of
marriage, but she seems to almost be mocking it.
