Grief Analysis

Author: Poetry of Elizabeth Barrett Browning Type: Poetry Views: 1323

I tell you, hopeless grief is passionless;

That only men incredulous of despair,

Half-taught in anguish, through the midnight air

Beat upward to God's throne in loud access

Of shrieking and reproach. Full desertness,

In souls as countries, lieth silent-bare

Under the blanching, vertical eye-glare

Of the absolute Heavens. Deep-hearted man, express

Grief for thy Dead in silence like to death--

Most like a monumental statue set

In everlasting watch and moveless woe

Till itself crumble to the dust beneath.

Touch it; the marble eyelids are not wet:

If it could weep, it could arise and go.

.: :.

I feel that Browning is saying that real, true grief is not so easily expressed. True grief leaves a person totally barren, \"full desertness, in souls as countries.\" I feel she is saying that if grief is easy enough to be expressed through tears and outwardly expressed angst, then that person has not reached their threshold for pain and suffering.

This was used on the Literature SAT 2. The point seems almost ironic that those that outwardly express grief are wrong to do so because they have not lived long enough? or they don't know who to blame. But the fact that at the end she says that if one could cry they would arise and go does this mean that she is being ironic in the way that those who outwardly express such feelings are able to more easily get over the pain?
