  7. 7.  Written in November 1837 when Emily would have been only 19, this poem is usually attributed to Emilys Gondal period – Gondal being an imaginary world created by Emily and her siblings in which heroes and heroines battled in romantic and desperate situations. The editor of the Selected Poems of the Brontës, Juliet Barker, quotes an earlier authority, Fannie Ratchford (Complete Poems of Emily Jane Brontë) and suggests that the poem refers to an incident when one of the heroines exposes her child to die on the mountains in winter. Although she cannot bear to watch the child die, the mother is held by the tyrant spell of maternal emotions and cannot tear herself away.
