I believe that the poem is very good. Not to mention how hard it is to
think about how it feels to be forgotten about.

erm..it's a nice poem with such lovely words...it makes people realize
sometimes in some victory there's a soul(person) behind it that we forgot
about...it's a nice poem n can make people realize that it's hurt when we
strive to get something than be forgotten when we achieve it.....dickinson
just doesn't want it happens to her...that's y she wrote it...i think!

All people fear that they will be forgotten after they die. Perhaps Emily
wrote this poem during the war, for she seems to say that the bravest of
men-soldiers- are likely to die anonymously on the battlefield and will be
unable to keep their memory alive.

I may not have a college level analsis, but I think it is about how
terrible it is to be forgotten. maybe I am way off base. It is a wonderful
poem though.
