The effect this piece of word choice creates is that the word “it” is very
cold, it is like they do not care who “it” was and the person that has died
has no dignity left, they are just “it”. The imagery technique used here is
like the exact opposite of personification because by calling this person
“it” they are being stripped from their identity, it makes them sound like

i think that they refer to it as an 'it' because in the stanza before, the
window opens up 'abruptly, mechanically' as if to let the spirit travel to
heaven. they then refer to the body as an 'it' because the spirit has left.

A morbid poem it is but, it shows:
1. The strong belief of superstition (paragraph 3)
2. The influence of religion (paragraph 4)
3. Parties who profit from the grim aspect of death (paragraph 5)
4. The close relationship people in a country town have with each other.
