    Default Some questions about Dickinson's poems #214 & #280

    Poem #214 "I taste a liquor..."
    1- The liquor that Dickinson tastes is not "brewed" [1] . Why not?
    2- What does she mean bye "Inebriate of Air" [5] ?
    3- How does the word "Landlords" [9] refer back to the previous stanza?
    4- In stanza 3, Dickinson contrasts herself to the bees and butterflies. Can you explain how?

    Poem #280 "I felt a Funeral..."
    1- In stanza 2, what is the "service" [6] ?
    2- What does "Then Space" [12] probably refer to?
    3- In what way is the speaker "wrecked" [16] in stanza 4?
    4- "And Being, but an Ear" [14]. What does Dickinson mean, in your opinion?
    5- Dickinson says she "hit a World, at every plunge" [19]. Can you suggest what she may mean?

    HI luis, you will find this very helpful on poem 214

    analysis of poem 214 1400 by Emily Dickinson - collegeresearch.us

    You should really copy the sentences as they are written, otherwise this is going to be really complicated.

    The sentence in the first line is: I taste a liquor never brewed.

    Nicely analized in this essay.
