Hasn't anyone made the connection to her personal life? As in, the years
her 'Terror' began? She suffered from 'seasonal issues' where she was happy
with certain seasons and sad with others. Scholars think it may be SAD or
bipolar disorder. Look them up. in her poem, she says, "... Twas just this
time, last year, I died."

Dickinson ALWAYS refers to her death poems as the death being in the past,
while telling you of them in the present.

For my highschool class, i had to read this poem, it was not recomended but
i choose it. I think she shows transcendentalism and that we must not miss
what we have left behind, even if that means not missing our true faith
that we are some how bounded to.

Richard Brevans below writes, "You notice the word "tassels" to describe
the yellow corn, thats strange" There's nothing strange about it. That's
exactly what corn tassels are called and de-tasseling the corn is something
rural children used to do to prevent cross polination -- something I'm sure
Dickinson knew all about.

I got a different view while reading it. I kept thinking how everyone wants
people to miss them after they are gone... it shows that they were loved
and important. But then I think Emily realized that if people missed her
all the time things would be miserable- her stocking wouldn't be filled,
her plate at the table would be empty... so instead she focused on that
they would all be reunited one day anyways and there is no need for them to
miss her as much as she may deserve.
