Emily Dickinson
Emily Dickinson
Emily Dickinson {1830-1886} was a prolific but private poet. She maintained a vast correspondence with friends, occasionally including a poem in her letters. Lyrical and emotional, her works explore themes of life and death, love and loneliness, grief and ecstasy. Dickinson frequently experimented with language, punctuation, and unexpected meters and rhythms. Although only a few of her more than 1,700 poems were published during her lifetime, Dickinson is considered one of America's finest and most influential poets.
