    I'm doing a project on Emily Dickinson for my 11th grade American Literature class, and i need to find a poem by Miss Emily Dickinson and then analyze it, i chose this poem, but i don't really understand it, so if anybody could please explain it to me and help me to better understand it, i would be extremely grateful.

    Yes, love does not need a reason to love. Dickinson has said it so beautifully and energetically...

    simply amazing. i love the last stanza:

    'The Sunrise—Sire—compelleth Me—
    Because He's Sunrise—and I see—
    Therefore—Then—
    I love Thee—'

    Dickinson has a very unique style, its in my opinion choppy but still has a flow.

    Dickinson has always filled me with emotion. Her use of visuals and alligory is something to aspire to! Great piece!

  • BEAU GOLDEN (11/5/2006 6:42:00 PM)

    I feel my poem, 'why do i love you' pales in comparison to Emily Dickinsons. I invite your comments too. Why do i love you, i ask myself lover? For what have u done so unique from another...'

  • Brian Dorn (7/23/2006 8:00:00 PM)

    Love is a complicated emotion, it's best not to question it. Great poem!

  • Ruby Root (7/10/2006 10:18:00 AM)

    Excellent write very moving and beautiful.

  • Faith Elizabeth Brigham (5/2/2006 4:01:00 AM)

    Ah, Emily Dickinson! How sweet her words in this beautiful love poem!
    Yes, this one left me feeling quite moved. Great poem!

  • Richard A. Davis SR. (5/2/2005 6:57:00 PM)

    It's a great poem, words of love are used all to often. 'Know I love thee by my actions, not my words'

  • Lidiya Zaharieva (5/2/2005 10:41:00 AM)

    Unusual, however I like it. It tells us so much, but in a way that we can relate it to our own lifes and most importantly the LOVE we feel for someone else. Really good, in a traditional way that leaves you breathless!
