for those of you that criticize and dislike this poem i do respect your
opinions. but when you don't have an argument to back it up, you need to
get off of this website. no, the poem isn't that great, but if you are
going to dis sonmebody's feelings that is dead you need to get a life. so

Emily Dickinson was a recluse. She fell in love with a married man and then
when he denied her she abandoned her life and stayed at home for the rest
of her life writing poems. So yes she is a loser in many regards and it
doesn't make any sense why people read poems about life lessons from a
person that did not experience a normal adult life. However being a recluse
she was very observant of her small world. But more importantly i have to
read these depressing poems for English and write up a bunch of bullshit

This poem relates to where I am in life and, of course, I've taken a shine
to it because of that. While it seems so plainly written I believe there is
a depth to it that can not be interpreted right away and, rather, needs to
be contemplated in order to see the poem behind the poem.
By the way, Dickinson was never married, I don't believe she had cats, and
while you proclaim she 'has no life' please keep in mind that when you're
you'll be forgotten... and she'll be remembered forever.
For all your social activity you don't seem to register she gave up what
you have to lead a more pure life... which granted her immortality.

I think this poem about losing one who was loved, the absence and the
waiting. she was certain of her love for him, but she didn't know when they
will together. I have read this poem in many editor, and I finded word and
sentence that differ. i don't know which one the right text.

The first time I read this poem, I didn't appreciate it. Then I read it
again, and I realized how emily felt because I feel it everyday. That
feeling that draws you to someone. You love to see them smile, and you cry
when they are in pain. Even though you love them, they don't love you. But
you enjoy their presence even if they don't know that you exist.

Van Dieman's Land was meant to be a place far away from somewhere, as in
she would count her fingers until they "dropped" waaaaay down in Van
Dieman's Land, which would take forever

I had to read a few poems by Emily Dickinson for my eleventh grade honors
English class, and this was, by far, my favorite out of the ones I had
read. The poem was rather easy to read, and I understood the theme almost
automatically. The poem is obviously about time, love, and separation. She
is unsure of how long she will be separated from the man, but is quite
certain about her love for him (even though he was a married man..). She
finds ways to pass the time until she can see him once again.

when i read this poem for the first time i was amazed on how she completely
sumed up what i was feeling inside. i could only imagine that she felt the
way i'm feeling right now when she wrote that poem. i don't know if that
guy she wrote about ever came back into her life but i hope he did. emily
was a great poet and its tragic that she never realized her talent when she
