Because I could not stop death by Emily Dickinson Emily Dickinson is one of the finest poets of the 19th century.
Death, as so often with Dickinson, has the last word.
As she often does in her poetry, Emily Dickinson capitalises the nouns she uses as if to suggest they carry deep metaphysical or religious significance: Of course, usually it is only proper nouns — names, in other words — that are capitalised in English, such as Emily or Basingstoke or Roger.
The principles they died for, and not their individual identities, seem to be what mattered.
How can a poet from the New World, inheriting the European tradition of Keats and ancient Greeceuse that tradition to create something distinctively American and new? What would it mean to die for beauty — or Beauty?
Or does this suggest that to die for what one holds dear is to fail? And although Truth and Beauty are presented as the same, the two figures in the poem are nevertheless buried in adjoining Rooms rather than the same room. Are they not quite so interchangeable as they might first seem, and are they simply similar — two sides of the same coin, but with one nevertheless being distinguishable as heads and the other as tails?Because I could not stop for Death – He kindly stopped for me – The Carriage held but just Ourselves – And Immortality We slowly drove – He knew no haste.
