Because I could not stop for Death Framed Poster




Because I could not stop for Death by Emily Dickinson is one of Dickinson’s most famous poems, personifying Death and Immortality, where the she depicts Death, by the end of the poem, as cruel and evil. At Poem Analysis, we wanted to illustrate this beautiful poem in art format, onto your very on original-design framed poster.

Some notes from Emma, the artist behind this piece:

When considering what I wanted to paint that might speak to the landscape of ‘I could not stop for death’ by Emily Dickinson, I dove deep into the poem to try to recreate the world through which the speaker moves. The speaker could not stop for death, so, in this image he is stopping for her. The scene is not a dark one, there is no fear, hate, or pain. Instead, the sun lights the “Fields of Gazing Grain”. The sun is setting, another reference to death, reminding the reader that the speaker and her guide are soon to “pass” it on their way to the afterlife.
