Born in Amherst, Massachusetts in 1830, Dickinson all started lifestyles as an brisk, outgoing younger lady who excelled as a scholar. although, in her mid-twenties she started to develop reclusive, and at last she hardly descended from her room in her father’s residence. She spent such a lot of her time engaged on her poetry, principally with no encouragement or genuine curiosity from her relations and friends, and died at age fifty-five. just a handful of her 1,775 poems have been released in the course of her lifetime. whilst her poems ultimately seemed after her dying, readers instantly well-known an artist whose enormous intensity and stylistic complexities might in the future make her the main widely known lady poet to write down within the English language.

Dickinson’s poetry is striking for its tightly managed emotional and highbrow strength. The longest poem covers lower than pages. but in subject and tone her writing reaches for the chic because it charts the panorama of the human soul. a real innovator, Dickinson experimented freely with traditional rhythm and meter, and sometimes used dashes, off rhymes, and weird metaphors—techniques that strongly prompted smooth poetry. Dickinson’s idiosyncratic variety, together with her deep resonance of idea and her observations approximately existence and loss of life, love and nature, and solitude and society, have firmly verified her as considered one of America’s real poetic geniuses.

Includes an index of first lines.
