Analysis and comments on Summer begins to have the look by Emily Dickinson

Comment 2 of 2, added on July 11th, 2009 at 10:27 PM.

It's been pointed out that she names no color in this poem. It's like
direct perception, and almost as if ther's no one there - no person
relating the experience, but rather the experience itself.

She uses "leaves" of nature and of books together. The tone of meloncholy
expresses the regret both of a passing of a season and the regret that a
much-loved book will soon end.
