I think this is the most powerful poem of dickinsons, which conveys the
opressivness perfectly. while studying for my leaving cert i got the idea
from the lines "shackles on the plumed feet And staples, in the Song" to
compare this poem to "Hope-is a thing with feathers" I dont know if this is
intentional but the image of a bird being "hope" and how in this poem it is
shackled and stapled, i found to be incredibly powerful.

Without being a huge fan of Dickinson, I have to suggest that this is a
hugely powerful piece. Her depression is so complete that her poetry only
rings true when expressing hurt and pain, and in no other poem is this
expressed so fully. The inevitability of her recession into depression,"The
Horror welcomes her, again," is astonishingly disturbing. She was a
depressive who writes poems and not a poet who was depressed yet this poem
alone makes her poetry worthy.
