The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. Caraval by Stephanie Garber. Perpetual nail it down —. Stanza 1. Sometimes, this is how my own life feels. Emily Dickinson had a great many wounds to trouble her. Many folks she loved died early and often. She loved stupid men who did not appreciate her back. She was inclined to be sensitive and retreat in times of wounding —instead of giving back as good as she got. Indeed, she was a gentle poet. But I cannot say she was a cowardly one. So all of this came from avoiding the wound? Then the second stanza—which seems an extension of the dyingexperience of the first stanza.
Here she speaks not of drowning —but of burial—or at the very least—a massive retreat to the shadows—out of direct light. Stanza 2. What could have done her in? Invariably women are crushed by men and god knows why when there are so many of them around that you could pick them like caterpillars off the million leaves of trees and not want for company.
