“abashless” was not a word in my lexicon, but my knowledge of English word
formation let me infer that it meant “not bashful” or “without
bashfulness". This caused a momentary pause to wonder what “bash” could be
for “bashful” to mean “full of bash.” I later learned from the OED that
this bash is formed from abash by loss of the initial a (the process is
called aphesis); and that abash means “To destroy the self-possession or
confidence of (any one), to put out of countenance, confound, discomfit, or

However, this still leaves me unsure as to what meaning Emily Dickinson
intended to convey. Perhaps it was “When one encounters a place of beauty
and tranquility for the first time, one cannot but be overcome by emotion”
– and perhaps not. Any thoughts?
