Analysis and comments on There is a pain -- so utter -- by Emily Dickinson

Comment 1 of 1, added on April 9th, 2007 at 8:28 AM.

It's about depression, the trance-like state in which people who are
depressed move through life. Stephen Cope(author of Yoga and the Quest for
the True Self)describes Dickinson as someone who "wrestled magnificently
with depression," writing poetey to live.
