Analysis and comments on Dare you see a Soul at the White Heat? by Emily Dickinson

Comment 1 of 1, added on May 31st, 2011 at 6:25 PM.

Just as a blacksmith refines metal by heating it white-hot, so trials (as
the purifying fires of the soul) come to everyone. If we patiently endure,
the trial will soon be over, and our character will be more full of light.
