Last a few years has been to Ibiza, so met a person there whose style of
presentation is very similar to yours. But, unfortunately, that person is
too far from the Internet!....

Emily Dickinson was one of the greatest poets to ever live. She translated
her sadness and woe into beautiful, well written art. All who think of her
as "lame" or simply just hard to understand cannot truly appriciate her
literature, and i feel sorrow for you.

I believe, that the author, Dickinson, tried to get her point across about
death and loneliness, in her poems. They were well written, and gave me
personally something to think about. I think, that by thinking of solitude
in death, gave her a sense of safety, allowing her to write as well as she
did. All in all, a great poem.

Emily Dickinson is depicting the world within one's mind compared with that
of reality. In the poem There is a Solitude of Space, she says that the
sea, death and space are only solace for those which need others to thrive,
such as society for a society consists of many individuals. A profounder
sighting, one which would mean more to her, is one where she is the only
person, within that interaction, one with itself, one might find the
meaning of life, existence and learn self truth. The last line, finite
infinity literally means defined endlessness, like that of the mind or the
soul, for although one can call it by the english language it is still

There Is a solitude of space

This poem describes a inner loneliness that puts you in your own

like Dickerson decribes as she says “compared with that profounder
site that polar

privacy”. Futermore she depicts something that is always alone has
no ending,

“a soul admitted to itself finite infinity”. People personally
could relate to this

poem if their new to a school or area as Dickerson describes
“there is solitude of

space”. within yourself .

She first expresses her loss of loved ones and the emotional battle she
has. I think that her loss was someone she really cared about, because of
words she used. I know how it feels to loose someone I love, but to go
through it twice would be devastating. She expresses how far death seems to
her by saying, “If immortality unveil a third event to me…” She uses the
word ‘hopeless’, which meant to me that she was struggling to accept what
happened. She then uses the word ‘parting’, which shows how much she is
torn by the death. By saying, “My life closed twice before its close”, she
is expressing that she has died twice inside before her actually coming to
her death.
