There is another sky Analysis



Author: poem of Emily Dickinson Type: poem Views: 25



2



There is another sky,

Ever serene and fair,

And there is another sunshine,

Though it be darkness there;

Never mind faded forests, Austin,

Never mind silent fields—

Here is a little forest,

Whose leaf is ever green;

Here is a brighter garden,

Where not a frost has been;

In its unfading flowers

I hear the bright bee hum:

Prithee, my brother,

Into my garden come!

I think that Emily is saying that there are other beautiful wonderful women in his life, but they are a part of his past for a reason. He should turn to her for affection (whether she means it sexually or not), because she is his everlasting source of love.

I think she is encouraging her brother in his bad times. She is telling him that there is a \\garden\\ to encourage him that there is a better place for his wife and children to go to.

she wasn\'t dying when she wrote the poem, so it can\'t be about heaven or some better place beyond reality.

I think Emily is trying to talk about sexual/non sexual stuff with her brother since she does mention \"into my garden come\". She refers to \"i want to have sex with you although i don\'t want anyone else to know about it.

Emily,your sexuality lies within your words. Though you lay in waiting, the frustration remains, this, evident in your prose. Closest, is your brother, Austin, with whom you have shared bed and soul. Virginity, Chastity, turns into, frustration. Written, though cleverly, to be hidden, as such. She remains, willful, without remedy or content. Spinster, for no other, could write this, this, but a lonely soul.

I received my first credit loans when I was 20 and it supported me a lot. However, I require the short term loan over again.

This is a poem about heaven, a perfect place, and when she say \"into my garden come!\" she is referring to her brother and wanting him to travel with her on there path to heaven

I think this could be about her brother struggling with some hard times and shes telling him that theres no need to worry because its not the end of the world. And come with her so she can show him.

I think it\'s about her wanting to have sex with her brother but that\'s just me.

This poem is about being hopeful and always having an open mind about life, because your life is up to you not anyone else and you have to live in the moment and except what comes your way.
Don\'t listen to evil and follow your own path.

She goes on telling splendid world out there apart from what is visible to you.She is thinking out of the box.Positive thinking leads to positive actions..I.e INSPIRATION.

I think she is trying to tell her brother, Austin, that there are better places out there. And not everyting is bad and you have to persevere. There are other chances to succeed and you don\'t have to get your spirits down. There are many different interpretations of the poem and all of them could be right.

I am also doing this poem for school... i believe it is about moving on and being optimistic and hopeful... there is another sky is a figure of speech... also everyone has different opinions so i think everyone needs to calm down:) i also heard that her brother\'s wife and children died in a fire which is why she is writing this to help him in his giref...

It is not speaking out about Communism. You\'re talking about Hitler and the Jews. Hitler is FASCIST. NOT COMMUNIST. Communists are all about equality for all.

I think this poem refers to the garden of Eden- though others tend to disagree. Thus the perfectness and evergreen leaves and referal to \"garden\". She is also talking about hope and an optimism to see through the darkness to walk into her garden of freedom and dreams. She is also encouraging her brother Austin who\'s child died the year that she wrote this poem. His mistress also died that year so prehaps he was upset and needed support from her sister Emily, who then thought of writing this poem. Overall though the poem brings a sense of new hope and encouragment to those who are lost in the darkness.

This poem seems to talk about there being a Heaven to look forward to, but to see the beauty and enjoyment of the earth here and now.

I think its speaking out about communism. I know that sounds crazy but bear with me for a second. Do you remember when Hitler tryed to exterminate the Jews. Well in her story she says, :Where not a frost has been" the key word is "has been" see that basically is the same thing as communism and its very clear that she is speaking out for "Civil Rights". I can tell by this poem that she hated a dictatorship and was all for a Rubpublic. Read this in Emilys eye's and you will see what i mean.

wow i didnt know so many ppl could argue of a poem.
its funny reading some of these comments. :)

Actually, as I read this poem, I realise that the poet is actually trying to convince her readers that she is in fact struggling hard in the real world which she is (was) living in. She could be trying to condem the real world for being so unfeeling and hopeless by comparing her idealistic world which is full of hope and beauty. Deducing from her tone, she is trying to motivate herself or rather persuade herself that the world is not so bad as it seems to be, thus she utilises her imagination to motivate her to press on in the real world.

I think that she is talking about getting right with the lord, her brother is not living his life spiritually, and i think she is trying to tell him that there is a better life away from the worlds beating eyes.

I think it's talking about the different perspectives of life. Another sky, another sunshine. There's a different view of things (philosophically) for everyone; something only they can see and no one else, a view of world where only his or her logic exists. (the speaker tells Austin to not look at what she thinks are faded forests or silent fields). A personal reality.
it's like preference of music. i like this song, you think it's the worst song ever. You like this band, but i think this band is better. we don't see eye to eye.
We don't see the world as it is, we can only view it imperfectly through a filter. Only part of the truth, not the whole truth.

I think this poem might be reflecting to her brother Austin's afair that he had .. like saying there is another sky - it's like saying that he needs to put it behind him and come to her "garden" which is like the world and get out of of the lies

it seems like she may be referring to the garden of eden. she was very spiritual, from being pushed by her father. the garden of eden is also supposed to be perfect. maybe she's telling her brother to forget about his troubles and look at a brighter side.

This may be a little out there, but I think she could be talking about intercourse. "There is another sunshine there though it be darkness there;" "Here is a little forest," "Where No frost has been" "Into my garden come!" I think that this poem can have a different meaning than the obvious.

I think that maybe she is trying to say that you have another chance at something, a better chance. When she says that it is where the frost has not been she is saying that it is where things are good and where he will have another chance at something. I mostly get this idea by the way she says that there is another sky, it kind of sounds like she is saying there is another chance to succeed. I might be crazy but stars are in the sky, and when you try something you reach for the stars. If there is another sky, there is another chance to reach for the stars.

I believe this poem was written for Emily's brother, Austin (hint the "Nevermind faded forests, Austin"). Perhaps she was writing this poem as guidence to him, telling him to always look on the bright side, or to not pay any attention to the darkness of the world.

| Posted on 2009-05-24 | by a guest


.: :.

i think this poem is about the fact that there is two ways. a dark one and the light one. this poem is probably saying to look at the light. so basically saying, look at the bright side! or even at the toughest tims you should look at the bright side.

I think it is just about how you shouldn't wish to be anyone but yourself (all referrs to garden ownership and maybe were the saying "the grass always looks greener in someone elses yard" came from)

.: :.

I think she may be speaking in biblical terms... when she speaks of another sky, another sunshine -- one can translate that to "another light". In the first verses of genesis they speak of god making day and night but then they get more specific saying that by the second or third day he made "two lights" -- one being darkness; night (which is considered the lesser light) and then the greater light refering to day (seperating morning and afternoon)... After god made night and day he went on to make the plants, shribs, flowers (which would expalin why she speaks of green leaves and a brighter garden - the garden of eden) as well frost never having touched the garden... frost is a lot of the time i find associated as an effect of sin... the garden of eden had never encountered sin when it was first made therefore it was untouched by frost. And god welcomed Adam (brother?) into the garden

I believe that the poem is not about heaven or people getting along.I think its about how you can always be optimistic about a situation. btw THIS IS SO NOT ABOUT SCIENCE
