Analysis and comments on The Infinite a sudden Guest by Emily Dickinson

Comment 1 of 1, added on March 28th, 2008 at 12:54 PM.

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.
