From the Paper:

"In her popular poem, "Because I Could Not Stop for Death," Dickinson provides us with an excellent example of her unique perspective regarding death. This lyric poem reads well and the rhyming structure of it seems to contradict its serious subject matter. It also presents us with an image of the poet. The tone in this poem is significant because the poem does not express fear or melancholy. Another interesting aspect of this poem is point of view. Interestingly, the deceased poet writes it. This perspective allows the poet to view death and life in a completely different way."
