Emily's poem "I dwell in Possibility" recounts how she lived in her imagination + poetry...where the possibilities were endless.
Although, given that Emily was known to be a recluse, and the negative connotation of the word 'dwell', there could be an alternate interpretation. The poem could be read as her brooding on the multitude of possibilities laid before her and asking 'what if?' instead of taking action. Read the rest of her poem here to see what you think!
