From the Paper:

"Why is the brain more knowledgeable than this paper? The brain can contain this paper and all of the ideas on it. Emily Dickenson wrote the poem "[The Brain - is wider than the Sky]" in 1862. In this work she makes statements about the brain and compares it to unexpected objects: the sky, sea, and God. The poem is in standard Dickenson format, with three stanzas of four lines each. In each stanza a new comparison is made. Imagery plays a lead role in the construction of this poem, in that it presents the reader with thorough descriptions of the poem's context. In deconstructing the stanzas and lines, many details can be revealed about the author's intent in creating a mental image in the readers' mind."
