"Because I could not stop for Death" Free Poster

"Because I could not stop for Death" is not the first of Emily Dickinson's poems about death, but it is surely the longest and most popular. In this exploration of mortality, death is approached from a calm and reasonable standpoint, opening up plenty of opportunities for discussion. Dickinson pits the corporeal and the immortal against each other in the journey of life. Time itself loses meaning for the speaker, and this lack of temporal awareness sets the overall tone for the poem. Download this free poster and get better acquainted with Dickinson's approach to the macabre.
