I don’t see the connection between any of those.  I’m pretty sure Dickinson’s speaker does not disregard virtue.  In fact, Dickinson is poking fun at her speaker for dying for a cause (beauty).  The poem is a satire on romantic martyrdom.  It reminds me of Romeo and Juliet, who died for love.I don’t believe death can be debilitating, can it?  In fact, the dead people live on for a while.  There are gothic elements of decay in the last two lines, and the “moss” growing over their mouths shows the natural world thriving, intruding, and silencing the dead.  So, their deaths were in vain: time marches on.There’s only two instances of enjambment (in the first stanza between lines 1-2 and 3-4):I died for beauty, but was scarceAdjusted in the tomb,When one who died for truth was lainIn an adjoining room.The enjambment enhances the lyricism and rhyme of that stanza.  I don’t see any special connection with enjambment to virtue or death.  I don’t see any repetition in the poem at all, do you?Regardless of which rhetorical devices you place in your thesis, you need to prove directly and explicitly what matches up with what.  Your thesis has four random elements thrown together without cause or effect.
