Analysis and comments on The farthest Thunder that I heard by Emily Dickinson

Comment 2 of 2, added on March 19th, 2005 at 7:38 AM.

this poem is about inspiration, which strikes the speaker like lightning
and about the invention of electricity (edison, 1879), which is viewed
ambivalently by the speaker. (creating "obligations")
