Because I could not stop for Death

by Emily Dickinson

A poem about a love story that was never realized. Such as the children who chose to play leaving their home works undone, a house that was left unfinished. Still hoping that he will love her the way she loves him. Emily Dickinson was born in Amherst, Massachusetts. She enrolled at the Mount Holyoke Female Seminary in South Hadley, but only for a year. Most of her life, she rarely left her house and guests were not so many. The persons with whom she did interacted, nonetheless, had a huge influence on her poetry. She was especially struck by the Reverend Charles Wadsworth, whom she first greeted on her way to Philadelphia. He went for the West Coast quickly after he made a visit to her home, and a few critics assumed his leaving made the broken hearted rhyme of verse from Emily in the passing years. While it is true that he was a big inspiration in her life, it is not evident that they had a romantic relationship. She would call him “my closest earthly friend.” Other probabilities for the unreturned love that was the issue of most of her poems such as Otis P. Lord, a Massachusetts Supreme Court judge, and Samuel Bowles, editor of the Springfield Republican. She moved in about total separation from the outdoors, but actively connected with her friends through letters and read for most of the time. She had a wonderful time with her family. Edward Dickinson, her father, actively joined the state and national government, serving in Congress for a term. Austin, her brother, who had law studies and became a lawyer, resided next to their house with his wife, Susan Gilbert. Lavinia, her younger sister, also stayed at home for most of her life in the same seclusion. Lavinia and Austin were not just family, but brilliant confidantes for Emily in her lifetime.
