"The Soul selects her own Society (303)" Emily Dickinson


Most of her life she spent at her house so most of her poems have to do with kinda the same thing. Death. She wasn't the type of writer to write about pretty butterflies and other things like that. it was all what she thought it would be like or what she's dealing with. in this particular one was about how she has no control on her life. she has to just go with whatever life throws at her. that her soul selects her society


The reason she wrote this poem was she's near death, she writes "Emperor be kneeling Upon her Mat" this is death. She also puts in here "Like Stone" which also means death. this is a good poem to read, it has a lot of hidden detail but i did like it
