TO TAP INTO THE MIND OF DICKINSON I think that Poem 106 offers up to the audience a wide range of thought and analysis The poem is about relationships The relationship between man and woman and how there is a controlling factor within the relationship The poet however is speaking about the change in control in power or at least this is what I perceive She shes the relationship as a power shift an uncanny relationship that is quite the opposite of what the typical male to female relationship was during her time period I hope to make this clear further in my analysis I believe that clearly our poet says We are the Flower--Thou the Sun meaning that women are the flower and the male is symbolized by the sun she includes the exclamation point for those who dont believe it The Sun is masculine not only with her speaking to Sir as the receiver but clearly uses the masculine his to comment upon the display of the golden orb as he completes his walk across her Amherst town from East to West Eden is clearly the magnificent metaphor behind Poem 106 No doubt she saw her Amherst town as endemic I am reminded of her letters to Abiah Root when Emily Dickinson was even younger at age 15 thirteen years earlier than this poem In Letter 9 she wrote I have lately come to the conclusion that I am Eve alias Mrs Adam You know there is no account of her death in the Bible and why is not I Eve If you find any statements which you think likely to prove the truth of the case I wish you would send them to me without delay To lay emphasis on this Emily Dickinson wrote If you find any statements which you think likely to prove the truth of the case I would suggest as per Emily Dickinsons thoughts
