Dickinson is well-known for what many consider a strange or even morbid fascination with death. Dickinson certainly did not view death in the same way that most people do, but her views on death, like most of her writing and even her own life, are decidedly up to interpretation. Prompt:
After reading “Because I Could Not Stop for Death,” choose ONE of the prompts below and write a response of AT LEAST 300 words: Some critics believe that the poem shows death kindly escorting the speaker to some sort of paradise. Others believe that death comes in the form of a deceiver, carrying her off to destruction. Which do you believe? Why? Offer proof from the poem to back up your belief.
Do you believe the speaker’s relaxed attitude toward death? Sometimes we pretend to be confident when we’re nervous and brave when we’re scared. Is this an example of that? Provide evidence from the poem to support your answer/argument.
