She rose to His Requirement Analysis



Author: Poetry of Emily Dickinson Type: Poetry Views: 1127

She rose to His Requirement-dropt

The Playthings of Her Life

To take the honorable Work

Of Woman, and of Wife-If ought She missed in Her new Day,

Of Amplitude, or Awe-

Or first Prospective-Or the Gold

In using, wear away,It lay unmentioned-as the Sea

Develop Pearl, and Weed,

But only to Himself-be known

The Fathoms they abide-

BOTH MALE AND FEMALE HAS TO SHARE EQUALLY IN THE LIFE.
NONE IS GREATER THAN NONE

I feel that is about a woman who has given up everything for her husband, yet she is missing out on what could be great in her life. No one, including her husband, acknowledges the sacrifices the wife has given up. While the poem suggests that the woman has given up the \"playthings\" of her life, I feel that she has given up more than simply play--she has given up opportunities. Yet these things have gone unmentioned. I find the poem somewhat depressing yet I also find that it is a subtle attack on women who give up their work to become housewives. I feel there is nothing wrong with taking the honorable work of the woman and wife

Poet says that in a married life women has to sacrifice everything for the requirements of her partner.She is forced to change hereself.She had to give off \'the play things\' of her life which are the symbols of a woman\'s innocence.She may lose her identity itself.In short,she has to wear a masc.

The He in this poem is not the husband but God. It is God that requires her to be woman and wife, and God who knows the deepest feelings of the woman.

when i first read this poem the initial reaction was that she was upset about giving up all that was good in her life for her husband and that she kept it all bottled up to herself (developing pearl and weed, unmentioned as the sea) and the fathoms are only known to him because he has no clue what shes feeling, but looking at it numerous times you realize that she never actually says she is upset, yes the tone is depressing but the biggest clue is that she says , IF aught she missed in her new day so the whole thing is an if statement so you never really know if she's upset or happy about being devoted to her husband

Pearls are valuable, just like the woman's personal ideas (or they can be as invaluable as weed sometimes). However, a women's ideas (back then, at the time of the poem), were suppressed, just like a pearl hidden inside a clam or oyster is undiscovered, and "only to Himself (the oyster)-be known".

The last three lines are comparing the woman in the poem to the sea where only she knows what her accomplishments mean and others can only see the final effect.

.: poem :.

The last three lines suggest that she does not desire to tell her husband about the things she feels she has missed out on in her lifetime of marriage because the husband knows best and only he can say what is considered valuable like the pearl or nothing like the weed.

This is an interesting poem. I feel that is about a woman who has given up everything for her husband, yet she is missing out on what could be great in her life. No one, including her husband, acknowledges the sacrifices the wife has given up. While the poem suggests that the woman has given up the "playthings" of her life, I feel that she has given up more than simply play--she has given up opportunities. Yet these things have gone unmentioned. I find the poem somewhat depressing yet I also find that it is a subtle attack on women who give up their work to become housewives. I feel there is nothing wrong with taking the honorable work of the woman and wife, though Dickinson delivers these lines with sarcasm. I am a bit confused on the last 3 lines. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.
