    I just read 'Ode: Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood' and I cannot identify the argument in the ode. If someone could help me work through this poem I would really appreciate it.

    i want to know what does this poem mean...

    Because I could not stop for Death by Emily Dickinson

    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
    And I had put away
    My labor and my leisure too,
    For His Civility-

    We passed the School, where Children strove
    At Recess-in the Ring-
    We passed the Fields of Gazing Grain-
    We passed the Setting Sun-

    Or rather-He passed us-
    The Dews drew quivering and chill-
    For only Gossamer, my Gown-
    My Tippet-only Tulle-

    We paused before a House that seemed
    A Swelling of the Ground-
    The Roof was scarcely visible-
    The Cornice-in the Ground-

    Since then-'tis Centuries-and yet
    Feels shorter than the Day
    I first surmised the Horses' Heads
    Were toward Eternity-

      Death is personified as a gentleman caller or suitor. Thomas H. Johnson calls him 'one of the great characters of literature.' But exactly what kind of person is he? Is Death a kind, polite suitor ... more
