Analysis and comments on There is no Silence in the Earth -- so silent by Emily Dickinson

Comment 1 of 1, added on June 17th, 2005 at 6:08 AM.

This Poem is what Ted Hughes refers to as Dickinson's dreaded inner vision.
The word "endured" suggests that she bears a kind of revelationary burden
which she must never realise or attempt to express, it is perhaps her own
terrified knowledge of infinte nothingness. Poems 670 and 777 suggest a
smimilar experience.
