"Faith" Is A Fine Invention Comments

"Faith" is a fine invention
When Gentlemen can see—


Emily Dickinson

That's why she had become world famous. She wrote many many short poems, with her definite statement in it. Most imporrtant for Lit. students to study her poems which must be pondered about. Indeed! Great words!

As an Atheist, I concur with this sentiment, thought unlike Miss Dickinson, I think faith is a poor invention.

A superb poem with a social moral message by the great Emily Dickinson. A well chosen poem of the day and worthy of it too.

Thought of as an eccentric by the locals, she became known for her penchant for white clothing and her reluctance to greet guests or, later in life, even leave her room. Most of her friendships were therefore carried out by correspondence. I cite here Dr. Tony's comment: Criticizing faith is not good. the more we are educated the more we depend on God. Fully agree. Thank you Dr. Tony.

Im sorry but this is a load of rubbish, God is Santa Clause for growing ups, the more education, is the realization we don't need a god for this world, only ourselves.

'" Faith" is a fine invention' is about Dickinson's views on religion. She uses the word " see" to mean believing in God. The word " Microscopes" refers to science in general. She is stating that there should be a balance between religion and science in our lives.

Very wittily put in a four-liner. One sees what to others defies, the other, what is beyond eyes.
