The Dead

This poem explains that the dead have no more desire for love, war, power,
or any earthly uses of this world. They only wish to sink into oblivion and
eternal rest. This poem gives the dark underlying message that death is a
better place to be than life because it holds no corruption and sin

The Dead

This poem is reinforcing her atheism if anything, the mention of anything
biblical is purely metaphorical and contextual.

She illustrates the finality of death in this remarkable little piece,
perhaps its unavoidable nature too.

I personally think she wants to paint how stark death is, "fond, final,
infamous decay" and the absence of luster; no heaven; no real angels.
