Title

Emily Dickinson’s Obsession with Death in Her Poetry

Authors

Abstract

Emily Dickinson's insight into the portrait of death can be considered as one of the major contribution to American literature. Her most of poems have theme of death which shows her deep obsession with death. Those disturbing events she witnessed in her early life are portrayed in her most of poems with theme of death. Her obsession with death is justified when we go through all those funeral accident which took place in her earlier life. As Dickinson lost few close people at the early stage of her life, she turned melancholic and obsessed with death. After losing some dearest people, she alienated herself from the world and spent her whole life being closed in the room and writing poetry. She always dressed herself in white clothes. She was highly introverted in nature. Emily considered death as a supreme touchstone for life. Dickinson's unique treatment of death stands remarkable in the history of American literature. Death haunted Dickinson during her whole life which she always tried to overcome. She studied death in every conceivable way; she could not forget easily any death or funeral happened in her life. She personified death by different symbols throughout her poems. Her poems personifying death mainly through the symbol of "Him" to have as many contradictions as the universe, and as many complexities. He is timid and bold. He is a lover, a murderer, a brigand, a thoughtful coachman, a democrat, a despot, a wild beast. She has no final view of death personified. He remains the great unknown, the great mystery. Her vision of death as reflected in her letters as well as poems is paradoxical. She considers death both friend and a foe. She fears as well as she welcomes it.
