Emily Dickinson

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 30, 2012, 11:11 AM

Emily Dickinson was ahead of her time.  While her contemporaries, such as Walt Whitman, where indeed writing free verse, their work, such as the example cited here […, were quite literal.  In contrast, Emily Dickinson was a modern artist, leaving a great deal of work -- and fun -- to us, the readers, to see what we wished, rather than asking her to tell us.

However, the example I have today is really just one that speaks to me:

Floss won't save you from an Abyss
But a Rope will --
Notwithstanding a Rope for a Souvenir
Is not beautiful --

But I tell you every step is a Trough --
And every stop a Well --
Now will you have the Rope or the Floss?
Prices reasonable --

Emily Dickinson
c. 1874

If it speaks to you too, or you have other Dickinson favourites, please let me know!
