Analysis and comments on Let down the Bars, Oh Death -- by Emily Dickinson

Comment 3 of 3, added on July 12th, 2008 at 4:21 AM.

It should read "O Death", right? It's a vocative. Have you manuscript
evidence for this reading?

According to her biography this must have been written sometime in the
1880's.. In 1955 it was compiled in its original form.
