on this wondrous sea
Emily lived in quest of peace.and she thought she might find it in the
west..still she loved the sea ,and compares her life with it..while the
shore was a dead life,which mostly peple spend..no pains,no sorrows,no
partings no tomorrows..

I thinkt it is a very interestig poem - and your interpretation is very
I interpret it in a similiar way, but there is one thing that is
incomprehensible to me:
This was the poem she sent to Susan Gilbert (who would be later her brother
austin's wife) as a plea to write her a letter back. That is, in my
opinion, the thing that doesn't match.

I'm reading or rereading Emily's poems in the order they are listed here,
so it will be a while before I'm done :) Anyhow, I was surprised by the
small number of comments on a poem I find most enjoyable.
Just want to add something to what others have already said. I find this
one is very musical really, and it is a fact that many of Emily Dickinson's
poems have been sung to a tune. But even if you just read this poem
carefully out and aloud and pay attention at the sounds you are making, the
al.literations and the contrasts between minimal pairs of phonemes (or,
simply put, sounds) such as /t/ /d/ /th/ /s/ /z/ and the way she combines
vowels and diphthongs you can almost hear and feel the waves she is talking
about and, with a bit of imagination, if you read this with the right
intonation and rythm, you can see yourself aboard a rocking ship and in the
end you are really glad when the poem is over and you are back at shore. No
kidding. Try it!

Wow. This poem is amazing and bogles the mind into a world of Dickinson.

My interpretation was the same as Tamala's. The "wondrous sea" represents
life while the shore of eternity is the after life, free of "storms" and

I think this poem is about leaving the hassles of every day life. A
breaker, (see line 5), has several meanings.
1. One who breaks (mean person)
2. A wave that is visible against an afloat serface
3. An industrial coal crushing machine
All three have meanings pointing to dickinsons attempt to express her

i think the poem is talking about them being on the journey through life
and them looking for land to be on for eternity is meaning after they die
they will go to heaven to be for eternity
