Fame is the one that does not stay—

Its occupant must die

Or out of sight of estimate

Ascend incessantly—

Or be that most insolvent thing

A Lightning in the Germ—

Electrical the embryo

But we demand the Flame

Fame does not last forever, like deez nuts.When was the last time you heard that or of lindsay lohan. Fame can bankrupt you and leave you with nothing after.

.: :.

Fame is not substantial (not real)
because the famous person [e.g. Shakespeare] dies;
or (like Christ), being out of our sight (though we worship the famous person),
the famous person ascends from the grave (is resurrected) not just once (as Christ was) but constantly (because we, who experience the work, enjoy and fall in love with the work [e.g. Hamlet] again and again � we keep resurrecting it);
or else the person�s work acts as inspiration for the next generation, the way electricity can stir a germ into being � the work inspires us to create new art [as Shakespeare might inspire E.D.] (it�s �insolvent� because this process of inspiration doesn�t bring any benefit to the famous person, now long dead);
but we, who experience the work, are hungry for the beauty and glory of art; what is important is not the fame but the art itself -- and that is the flame.
[This poem is one of the most misunderstood of E.D.\'s work, though the first line is often quoted. E.D. is not concerned here with herself, but with art.]
