Dickinson often reflects on death and it is a main theme in her poetry. “Because I could not stop for Death" portrays the afterlife directly, but her doubts are evident in other works such as "I heard a Fly buzz -- when I died --". This particular poem focuses on the actual process of dying and indicates an uncertainty with what will become of the soul afterwards. However, it is clear that one of the main facts about death discussed by Dickinson is her belief in eternity.
