Analysis and comments on Ideals are the Fairly Oil by Emily Dickinson

Comment 1 of 1, added on December 5th, 2005 at 6:45 PM.

i believe that this poem along with several others is about emily
dickinsons distrust for humanity. i believe she is an idealist at hear tbut
that she doesnt trust humanity "the eye" to respect or live up to ideals.
for further evidence check out tell the truth or tell it slant and i died
for beauty-- but was scarce.
