i think this poem is talking about how she wants to forget the man she
loved but her heart won't let her forget him.

I really think that Emily Dickinson was one of the most fasinating poets.
She wrote in a very gloomy way,and in very interesting ways.This well
written poem is simply telling you that she is having trouble choosing
weather she should beleive in her heart or if she should listen to her
mind. I really do think she was a great poet and it's a shame she died.

The theme is about Emily Dickinson trying to persuade her heart to forget
the guy she loved. It is compulsory to forget him because of the
circumstances, and on the other hand, he gave her the warmth and light. Her
conflict in this poem is between her heart and her mind. She is trying to
tell her heart to forget him otherwise she canít go on with her life.

This poem is soooooo great! I can relate to it. She tells of how she has
been hurt so bad by someone, that she wants to forget about him, but her
heart won't let her.

I think this poem is about how she lost a loved one and wants to forget the
tragedy that she has suffered from for such a long time.

This poem has been set to music by James Mullholand for women's chorus,
piano and french horn. It is a gorgeous piece that really captures
Dickinson's meaning.
