Analysis and comments on I see thee clearer for the Grave by Emily Dickinson

Comment 2 of 2, added on June 11th, 2009 at 1:39 PM.

Emily knows...We must "ALL" encounter the grave sooner or later...realizing
this leads us to become less judgemental and more understanding..as St.
Paul states..."We only see in part," therefore..perhaps..we may come to
recognize..that we are all like trees...we will not be accurately measured
until we have fallen...and even that right is not ours................

It seems as if Emily is writing of her lost father here. As any of us know
who have lost a parent, the grave does make us see with far greater clarity
the real person we've lost. And what imagery, the empty nest, which stands
as a testimonial for her father's qualities.
