to me, this poem expresses an invisible existence that Emily was always
in-tune with. an almost meta-physical awareness of each separate "world"
at every plunge -- she had notions of something larger than what was just
tangible and visible in the world, long before it was common to theorize
about such things. She addresses the significant isolation this leaves her
with, as she is obviously much different from those around her, AS WELL AS
her constantly referenced struggle with religion in the lines:
"As all the Heavens were a Bell, and Being but an Ear, and I, and Silence,
some strange Race, Wrecked, Solitary, here." Her concept of God and
religion did not fit the mold of the strict lifestyle her family applied
to, or that of the beliefs around her -- and it was a constant confliction
in her soul.
For others she believe this belief in God or "the Heavens" was so fluid and
natural, all they had to do was simply exist or "be" and they could hear
the heavenly bells -- but she was wrecked alone in a silence where the
bells were unheard
