Analysis and comments on For a Dead Lady by Edwin Arlington Robinson

Comment 1 of 1, added on April 13th, 2006 at 12:01 AM.

This poem uses complex wordplay to provoke its message, however, the
message may be hard to understand to most. The poem's basic output is the
fact that Robinson is talking about a dead lady and going into deep
description about her death. He also reminices about the poem itself,
which I find very intresting. If this was based on life exprience, this
person probably meant more to him than anything.
