Emily Dickinson On Drugs?
Emily Dickinson's poems often make me ponder her mental
stability. Sometimes I wonder if she was psychotic or on some
kind of mind-altering drugs. In Dickinson's poems "I felt a
funeral in my brain," "My life closed twice before its close,"
and "Because I could not stop for Death," we shall see whether or
not Mr. J's theory of her insanity stands true. In the piece "I
felt a funeral in my brain," she views her own funeral in her
head. At one point she thought, "My mind was going numb;" now I
strongly believe that one has to be on "crack" to write a line
like this. "Then Space-began to toll;" I don't believe Emily
Dickinson graduated from the D.A.R.E. program because normal, non-
drug using people do not normally space out and see their
funerals in their heads. "And I dropped down, and down," in other
words, Emily just passed out. Not only was Emily passed out, she
was also having near-death experiences according to the poem "My
life closed twice before its close." Maybe she was trying to kick
the habit and became depressed. "It yet remains to see If
Immortality unveil A third event to me" means that she is worried
about dying and she wondered if there is anything for her after
this life. Once again, in her poem "Because I could not stop
for Death," Dickinson is writing about her death, only she's
talking in the past tense like she's already dead. Depression?
Withdrawal? Crack? Will someone please tell me what the hell is
wrong with this woman? This lady is obsessed with her own death;
my suggestion to her is to get a life before she really does die.
Obviously Emily is on some kind of mind-altering drugs.
Otherwise, she would not be constantly writing about her own
death; she would be writing about trees and birds, love and

Themes Relating to Good Versus Evil in Billy BuddThemes Relating to Good Versus Evil in Billy Budd Many themes relating to the conflict between Good and Evil can be found in Herman Melville\'s novella Billy Budd, Foretopman. First originating as a poem about a middle-aged man on the eve of his execution, Billy Budd is the only true work of fiction written by Melville (Bloom, Critical Views 198). The idea for the novella was probably suggested in part by an incident in 1842 in which a midshipman and two seamen of the American brig Somers were h

The Case For The Existence of GodThe Case For The Existence of God by Bert Thompson, Ph.D. Introduction Either God exists or He doesn\'t. There is no middle ground. Any attempt to remain neutral in relation to God\'s existence is automatically synonymous with unbelief. It is far from a moot question, for if God does exist, then nothing else really matters; if He does not exist, then nothing really matters at all. If He does exist, then there is an eternal heaven to be gained (Hebrews 11:16) and an eternal Hell to be avoided (
