Poem #435 by Emily Dickinson
|Much Madness is divinest Sense–
To a discerning Eye–
Much Sense–the starkest Madness–
‘Tis the Majority
In this, as All, prevail–
Assent–and you are sane–
Demur–you’re straightway dangerous–
And handled with a Chain–
|divinest = most perfect
discerning eye = one that looks closely and carefully
starkest = most obvious
prevail = win, rule,
assent = say yes, agree
demur = say no, disagree
