"OMG my boss just said “… over the internets.”"
"Dickinson is not a poet would visit the volcano herself anymore than John Ashbery in that poem, The Instruction Manual, actually visits Guadalajara, which is, in detail, described in the poem. Dickinson would not leave her home to visit the actual Earth’s geography. She is capable and able to contemplate power without standing in awe at the thing itself because she, the speaker, the creator of the poem, is the thing itself with power."
