This is very wonderfull poem. I love it! But, I still confuse about the
meaning of the poem.

I think Dickinson is one of the best American poet. In this poem, she has
conflict between her heart and her mind to choose her love, so his mind
spoke to her heart trying to persuade the heart to give up this love which
is impossible.

Poetry makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I like to curl up for
hours with a blankie and enjoy a nice poem. My boyfriend and I read poetry
to each other before we uh-huhhh....

This is such a wonderful poem. I think it's easy for most of us to relate
to the inner conflict between the heart and mind.

this poem reminds me of ancient ninja folklore. the way the ninja moves is
similar to the diction that Emily uses in Heart! the samuri blade is sharp
and stings with truth as does the words of my dear close and personal
friend, Emily Dickenson. by examining and analyzing the attacking and
blocking techniques of the japaneese ninjas (these moves are i llegal in
the United States) we can observe the subtle intracacies of this poem.

The poem seems to me to contain a sense of 'stepping back' from emotion,
even if the emotion has been keenly felt. The stepping back is important
for the creation of the poem, which has beauty but also precision and
formality. - Emily never wallows. The love affair with the word will
outlast the love affair with the man.
