This is my letter to the world, Analysis



Author: Poetry of Emily Dickinson Type: Poetry Views: 5452





This is my letter to the world,

That never wrote to me,--

The simple news that Nature told,

With tender majesty.



Her message is committed

To hands I cannot see;

For love of her, sweet countrymen,

Judge tenderly of me!

Wow. As I sit here reading these comments I think to myself,what a bunch of dumb-asses. Ok lets see here, we have idiots trying to use big words in a sorry attempt to sound smart, and we have ignorant no-lifes leaving lewd comments about a poem written over a hundred years ago. Dont you just love America? ....*sarcasm*

okay so this was my favorite comment note that emily wrote this during the romanticism period which was basically when people wrote about nature, humanity, curiosity for the future and a bit of longing? i guess for the past when things were simpler? for lack of better words oh and when she says HER she was referring to Nature itself the World and nature are two words to describe the same thing and countrymen are literally countrymen of the new world in other words the US so shes basically just taking about the changes in leadership and how this is a good thing um yea thats all. but oh my gawd you people are ignorant seriously I was looking for help not planning to analyze it my self oh and to the people who said she was high or a lesbian grow up seriously what are you seven? stop wasting your time criticizing DEAD FAMOUS authors and go make something of your lives instead of a 14 yr old scold you through the internet jeez

The writer is an acute observer of reality, that is of Nature, which transcends social scurrying and sentimentality. She is apart from society and has ambivalent feelings about this; one does not say \"that never wrote to me\" without some bitterness. She is offering truth to an indifferent populace.
And at least some of this is a coy posturing; her last line reveals as much. She expects she will be heard, at least by the recipient of the poem. This is the arch, mocking playfulness we also see in \"Dear March, come in . . .\"
Who knocks? That April -
Lock the Door -
I will not be pursued -
He stayed away a Year to call
When I am occupied -

To Emily (2011)
A passage in a septum, in nature
Can root a rhododendron seedling!
To thrive in fertile woods
Or not!
You spoke of Countrymen. I have thought about. The past is such a curious creature to look her in the face today.
If Martha only could have seen the future! Do not be afraid Emily, but I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep.
Your soulmate
A nobody too

There is a slight possibility that she wrote this song when she was high. Along with the 1800 poems they found she had written, they did not mention her stash of weed that was hidden along with them.

i still can\'t under stand lines 3&4 , 7&8:s what does she mean by (( the simplest news that nature told-
with tender majesty ))
and (( For love of her-sweet-countrymen-
judge tenderly-of me ))
i would be so thankful for whoever explains them for me

She\'s wishing the world to remember her after she is gone, for one presumption. In some form, she might be yearning for a lost love in some sense or another. Maybe she is shocked by some unexpected news? Or vaguely, I thought, she would be asking for help with her writing of her poetry.

Beautiful poem. What i don\'t understand is the last line, but what i wanted to say to those of you that are saying things such as stick it up ur vag, why are you even on this site reading poetry. So why don\'t you just go argue with each other in a chatroom and leave people who would like to learn about Emily\'s writing alone.

I think it is saying that she wants to tell people the lessons that she was never told and all she has learned comes from nature. Andnature lessons come from god. people who love nature should love her to

Let me translate....
To my readers
Who did not know me
These poems are about what was so obvious
Written with love
The poems message is for
The people I will never meet
I loved my poems, you who read it,
Love me because you loved those poems that I wrote

this has a fantastic regular ryhme scheme that is quite sexual and i feel it generates vibes within the human body. i feel she is trying to convey her death and her and unwillingness for life, although she is trying to hightlight and portray her lesbian sexuality

I understood this as her being upset about not being seen as an equal compared to men. "The simple news that Nature told" is that she would have "inherent" disadvantages compared to men. She ends it with "Judge me so tenderly!" with exclamation at the fact that she would not be treated as an equal to countrymen.

Emily is writing a letter to the world in the form of a poem. The world does not recognize her because she never stepped foot past her house/garden. She seems to be able to predict that someday people will be reading her poems. She wishes to pass on the messages and lessons that nature has taught her. Emily also has the expectation that the future readers of her poems will enjoy nature as she did (line 7). She requests in the last two lines that the readers will enjoy her poems and not critique them too harshly (unlike some of the people who have left comments here). The topic/abstract image is Nature and the concrete image is a letter. This is a beautiful poem with a great message (: Hope this helps y'all!! ~Kim Eun Hye

The themes deal with alienation and loneliness, as well as art and the experience nature and the world itself provides. I don't understand why we're all at each other's throats. Poetry is meant to be understood in different ways, and opinions aren't always supposed to be identical.

I read somewhere that she is predicting that her poems will be famous someday.

Ok, let's start with the title, "this is my letter to the world" someone is speaking to us we don’t know who this is. In line two the "world", meaning humans never wrote to her. "News that Nature told" this means the things around us is prove of her letter. Second stanza, first line we can tell the persona is a female. In the third line the hands of the female are invincible, why? Because she uses mysterious powers to create and destroy and that’s why the last lines the speaker ends with (7-8)"lover her-sweat countrymen judge tender of me". My conclusion is we as individuals are “countrymen” because we live in her land and "she" is Mother Nature.

u guys are going tooo deep. this coud simply be about the world" everyone" not communicating with the narrator(not nessecarily emily) it says nature (or could it be a spacific person, nature is a spacific part of the world) she learns something she wants the world who would nopt listen, listen for once, because she has something important to say," love your sweet countrymen, judge tenderly of me" when thinking of nature tender is first to come to mind. so... a tender kind person told her she needs to lover her countrymen( native of land is the correct def.) and in return they will judge tenderly of her. wha la. not so hard. dont get burried in ur thoughts and go off track.

Wow, look at all the idiots here, try to understand the great poems she writes and you might just be a little better off. I pity you all for not seeing and understanding her work. You are truly missing out. Go watch another action movie with no plot why don't you.
To the others that understand poetry, it's a treat to see you here. The world needs more people like you.

this is such a dumb poem i ripped this out of the book and whipped my bum with it. why are we still talking about her she died well over 100 hundred years ago this is worthless history. this does not have anything to do with America and its history.

In my song, 'Emily', I've tried to convey my analysis of Emily's poem, via each chorus, which reflects on the lines she's x felt a lonely school girl bond to her poetry when I was very young. And, also wondered if the world would 'judge tenderly of me'

how about the "hands" that the speaker cannot see?

.besides this being a gentle reminder that each one has something worthwhile to say, it is also the reminder that one who may seem as a nobody also speaks of importance. (one that would be deemed insignificant by the masses)
she so typically used the metered rhyme scheme to convey quickly some of her deepest thoughts. this poem is no exception to her styled writing with a dash of hope is still left to the reader.

what i don't understand is how some people can say this is meaningless, and mock her work. she may have had troubles, but it lead to GREAT poetry, as this one. (from my view of this piece) she tries to fit in, and understand the world, but it some ways, the world has not answered her. the world has been cruel, and she asks for no more harsh criticism from it. she wants them to let her case be, while atttempting to understand her. if that makes any sense...[it does in my head]

I think this goes well with "Song of Myself" by Walt Whitman. It's two totally different points of view-but it's still good to read them together. It's kind of impowering.

this poem is about how she wants the world to judge her tenderly. She wants to communicate with the world and be loved, but she does not recieve the same.
