Abstract

Emily’s poetry is very uneven; some of it is undistinguished or fragmentary, and, despite its poetic impact, much remains vague and puzzling from ignorance of Gondalian contexts (see pp. 371–3). Metrically it can have the conventional simplicity of a hymn, as in ‘When days of Beauty deck the earth’, where the imagery is general and commonplace, or it can be jejunely inappropriate, as in ‘King Julius left the south country’, which nevertheless contains some striking imagery and expression:

Close by his side a daggered death

With sheathless point stands sneering.
