A Short Analysis of Emily Dickinson’s ‘I’ll tell you how the Sun rose’

Edna Pickett's sophomore English class, circa Within her collection of some 1, poems, Emily Dickinson has included at least 22 that focus on the diurnal phenomena known as "sunset.

    The sunset, woven of soft lights And tender colors, lingers late, As looking back on all day's dreary plights, Compassionate;.

    Sunset. by Emily Dickinson. A sloop of amber slips away. Upon an ether sea, And wrecks in peace a purple tar, The son of ecstasy.
