To me, the way I interpret the poem, is as a eulegy! Sophies choice is the
next movie I will watch!

A great and powerful ending to any movie, book or story is a rare treasure.
In my opinion there are only a handful of films that have what I would
call "great great endings". Sophie's Choice is one of them. A River Runs
Thru It is another. Sophies's Choice hits a perfect pitch of simple but
powerful words, thanks to Ms. Dickinson - great music and great
performances, all elegantly brought together at this deeply touching moment
in the film. It never fails to leave me silent, humble and in awe. It is
a treasure.

1955 was probably the date that the book was published. Collections of
poems by Emily Dickinson continue to be published even today. It doesn't
mean the she actually wrote the poem in 1955. For Pete's sake.

I also discovered this lovely poem from the book/film, Sophie's Choice. I
did not understand it at first - I tried to read too much into it...
however, Dickenson is very plain and direct so it should be read that
way... it was such a perfect way to end the tragic story.

"Ample Make This Bed" is one of thousands of poems written by Emily
Dickinson,during her lifetime (1830 - 1886. I am sure that the 1955 date is
a typographical error. The poem is at once heart - rending and demanding.
Dickinson insists that death, the dead and dying be acknowledged. She
reaffirms her belief in resurrection, new life, and hope for salvation on
"that great gettin' up morning!"
