Poetry Recitation 68: "I Gave Myself to Him" by Emily Dickinson
I Gave Myself To Him - Poem by Emily Dickinson
Report Reply. The poem revolves around the subject of love and marriage. First you must understand the traditions of marriage in the 19th century; they were mostly made out of convenience not love. Here dickinson is exploring the nature of mutual commitment and that until the promise has been made the 'value' of the transaction cannot be fully assessed.
