One of the major themes or voices that come out of her poetry is Death. For Dickinson, death was not something scary or terrible as she considers it as a supreme touchstone. In her poetry, she has tried to personify death, as a very charming suitor. In her famous poem, Death, she says, ‘Because I could not stop for Death, He kindly stopped for me’ (Dickinson, 2005, line 1-2).
