Sample text

In stanza two the speaker is held upside down (“delirious”) just perceptibly by the hem of her clothes, remaining only marginally in existence. What “breaks” in the stanza subsequently are the connections to that existence, and the speaker is delivered from the dream of this death, but delivered into what is unclear. In the next four stanzas, the attempt to recapitulate a story whose meaning the speaker still does not know is laden with confusions of the earlier rendition. The impulse to tell and retell the same story has a quality of hysteria to it, for the implicit belief that to tell the story over will insure getting it straight is proved wrong.

Note the quasi-aggressive intimacy with which Dickinson describes such procedures: The Soul unto itself Is an imperial friend— Or the most agonizing Spy— An Enemy—could send— Secure against its own— No treason it can fear— Itself—it’s Sovreign—of itself The Soul should stand in Awe— (683) The repetition of “it’s” serves to encode the doubling, the turning of self upon soul, the wrestling of intimate yet potentially antithetical identities. Out of such aggressive intimacy, there emerges awe, the same power Dickinson elsewhere identifies as the spur to her making poems.

Emily Dickinson: A Voice of War 23 This text takes place in the sphere of human language, which is itself identified as the poet’s own world—for “Story” here figures not only as text but as universe and experience within it. This text-as-world could have been—and should have been—realized by the poet’s human power, fulfilled within her human world. She would have it printed and read. But this has been willfully prevented by God’s interdiction, which here has a particularly verbal resonance. God’s decree forbids the completion of the human text.
