    This really added to my understanding of the poem and what I was reading. Having such a personal connection to the poem really adds to your interpretation.

    I don't know if the repeating of this line is different enough, compared to the first one.

    This is one of the areas where I struggled with the rhyme and not over emphasizing it.

    @allyssa.yanniello: Thanks. There were areas where I just felt the emphasis was necessary. The narrator seems sad but I can see him feeling angry at some moments that his love was taking away his love.

    You emphasize "and nothing more" which reminds us that it's a repeated part of the poem and a really important line.

    Good pauses. Sometimes Dickinson uses so many dashes/comma's that it's hard to read it out loud and still have the poem flow

    "Surf tormented shore" sounded perfect. The speed and emotional power behind it is really good and ties into the personal emotion that comes in later.

    I agree. I've read many of these Poe poems before, and I knew that I loved them, but now that I know more about critical analysis, they have even more meaning to me.

    @allyssa.yanniello: Thanks! I hate my own voice (I think that's pretty typical though). I'm glad it helped with understanding.There is definitely a different experience between reading a poem in your head to reading it out loud.

    @AshleyCarney: Thanks. It was definitely a challenge for me to slow down, I rush naturally when I read out loud, but after a couple of practice tries I got it down. It did take a COUPLE of practice tries though.

    You sound really proper (almost british) here which seems really appropriate to me. The narrator is a proper kind of guy so I like that you made him sound that way.

    How did you decide to put in your pauses? Is it the end of lines? I had trouble with that I little when I was reading Dickinson because she has a lot of punctuation at the end of lines.

    There was a lot of punctuation that made me stop at the end of lines but here is one example of a time that I could run the lines together so the poem makes more sense.
