The Soul selects her own Society Analysis

The Soul selects her own Society-

Then-shuts the Door-

To her divine Majority-

Present no more-Unmoved-she notes the Chariots-pausing-

At her low Gate-

Unmoved-an Emperor be kneeling

Upon her Mat-I've known her-from an ample nation-

Choose One-

Then-close the Valves of her attention-

Like Stone-

.: :.

The soul is personified as a girl. The narrator asks the audience and the community to obtrude, or interrupt, no more. The girl will not accept anyone other than those she chose. It's like those close friends that you have, the ones that only know your deepest secrets. That is what is explained in this poem. The soul has chosen a select few among a nation that she will keep by her side. Even if an emperor is kneeling and begging to be let in, he won't be unless the girl chooses him. Basically, she's not selfish, because most likely she's just like many of us. We only have a few friends that we can truly rely on, just like the soul.

It's saying that people generally stick to one thing. Our natural instinct is to select one type of soul and shut it out. Not that it's "selfish" just instinct.

i think that this person is selfish in the poem. Shutting people out from being her friends. She is just going to entertain one type of soul and not be open to anything else. She has a selfish soul!!!!
