This work marks a return to Platonos' early musical studies in Vienna, where she would set the English verses of a friend of hers to music she would write on the piano. Those songs have been lost since, but not the feelings of experimentation and freedom which are evident in these new pieces. Emily Dickinson has been a lasting influence on Platonos throughout the years. According to Platonos, "although Dickinson was confined at home by "nervous prostration", she was profoundly in touch with her outer and inner reality, she was amazingly sensitive to the great issues of human existence, Love and Death, Eros and Thanatos, subjects to which the bulk of her work is devoted". Themes that have been explored time and time again on Platonos' original songs.
