I dwell in Possibility – A fairer House than Prose – More numerous of Windows – Superior – for Doors – Of Chambers as the Cedars – Impregnable of eye – And for an everlasting Roof The Gambrels of the Sky – Of Visitors – the fairest – For Occupation – \(\textbf{This}\) – The spreading wide my narrow Hands To gather Paradise –

in that line, what she mean to say by "\(\textbf{- This -}\)" ? she means to say that her occupation is : "spreading wide her hands and gathering paradise" or "writing poetry, which implies whatever she is doing right now" which one ?

hm... i want to say that its your first option.... but writing poetry can be her way of gathering paradise... i may just be overthinking this (: which one are you leaning towards?

  • anonymous
probably just for emphasis..
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
i guess so. still i lean towards first option only but still i feel if she wants us to follow to next line to knw about her occupation, she could have simply said , for occupation - this - or for occupation - this : hmm

hmm... now you have me stumped. (x
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8

ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8

anonymous
  • anonymous
haha well in all honesty im pretty tired (x but if i think of anything else. Um but i do think that her using the metaphor of paradise is writing poetry.
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8

de nada(; (your welcome) haha

i think i get your first reply nw. if "Paradise" is a metaphor for 'writing poetry', then -This- can standalone there aswell. 1) "-This-" can hint 'current work' shez doing, which is writing poetry. 2) paradise also refers to writing poetry itself. such a nice interpretation(yours) thank you :)) took me a while to grasp :( !!
