The best I can infer the identity of the "Guest" in this poem, is that it is a reference to the infinite and omnipresent spirit of God. He is the stupendous one that does not come because His presence is already, infinitely everywhere. Emily Dickinson's syntax is very interesting, but can cause some difficulty in understanding her poems.
