I took my Power in my Hand Analysis



Author: Poetry of Emily Dickinson Type: Poetry Views: 514

I took my Power in my Hand-

And went against the World-

'Twas not so much as David-had-

But I-was twice as bold-I aimed by Pebble-but Myself

Was all the one that fell-

Was it Goliath-was too large-

Or was myself-too small?

.: :.

She\'s pondering if she, one single person, and a woman no less, is strong enough to tackle the things she wishes to do in life, or if her tasks to be done are too menicing, like goliath.

.: kate grube's analysis :.

This poem is pretty straightforward. Emily alludes to the Bible twice, once when she mentions David and the second time when she mentions Goliath. The story goes that David, a man, overcame Goliath, a giant. She says that she (David) tried to take on a big task or had big dreams and then tried to tackle them. But the attempt was not successful. She ends with pondering whether the dream (Goliath) was too large for her to achieve or if she was just not powerful enough to achieve it.
