Emily Dickinson (December 10, 1830 í¡¹ 15, 1886) was an American poet who, despite the fact that less than a dozen of her nearly eighteen hundred poems were published during her lifetime, is largely considered one of the most original and influential poets of the 19th century.
What is known today about Dickinson's personal life has largely been taken from hundreds of letters that she wrote to family and acquaintances as well as (sometimes biased) impressions about her character that were written in the diaries and journals of those close to her. Born in Amherst, Massachusetts to a successful family that had strong ties to the community, she lived a mostly introverted and reclusive life.
She was schooled at the Amherst Academy for seven years before spending a truncated amount of time at Mount Holyoke Female Seminary. After leaving school, she rarely traveled outside of Amherst or very far from her family's home, which was called the Homestead. During this time, Dickinson became a prolific private poet, choosing to publish only a handful of her poems, all of which were greatly altered to fit the more conventional poetic rules of the time.
Dickinson's poetry is lyrically unique for the time period; her lines are short, typically lack titles, and often utilize slant rhyme and unconventional capitalization and punctuation. Her poems also tend to deal with the themes of death and immortality, two subject matters that plagued her personal letters to friends. (Wikipedia)
