Analysis and comments on Perception of an object costs by Emily Dickinson

Comment 1 of 1, added on April 18th, 2005 at 11:43 PM.

The worth of an object is determined by the price we place on its head.
Perception is based chiefly on memory. Dickinson seems to be saying that
our memories over-inflate the value of some objects that really are not as
rare as they seem.
