Demur from society

Dickinson is telling us that it is better to be masters of our own
decisions than to worry about what society accepts. "Madness" is the
demurring from society, rejecting their views and becoming "dangerous". To
"Assent" is to remain a quiet shadow, not to be bothered with.

emily is fantastiv

this poem is basically saying that to be crazy is to be sane and to be sane
is to be crazy. to people with deceptive eyes the sanest ones are actually
the crazy ones. the majority who thinks of themselves as being sane are
really the crazyones.
