    Emily Dickenson (1830-1886)

    The famous hermit from Amherst, Massachusetts, Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) published only eight poems during her lifetime. Born to a successful family with strong community ties, she lived a mostly introverted and reclusive life.

    Dickinson's poems are unique for the era in which she wrote. In fact she's noted for her unconventional broken rhyming meter and use of dashes and random capitalisation as well as her creative use of metaphor and overall innovative style. Her poems also tend to deal with themes of death and immortality, two subjects which infused her letters to friends.

    Despite unfavorable reviews and skepticism of her literary prowess during the late 19th and early 20th century, critics now consider Dickinson to be a major American poet. Today her nearly 2,000 succinct, profound meditations on life and death, nature, love, and art make her one of the most original and important poets in English.

    :wow:

    Tribute.

    Such a hermit insight that perished when Dickenson succumbed
    She who saw the world with eyes hidden, yet never covered
    Shall we seek, as Poets & Poetesses, such undaunted perfection

    Happy National Poetry Month :yes:

    :wow: OMG! She only published 8 poems! Reading her work, makes me feel like she was before her time, so so so beautiful, elegant, one-of-kind and classic! This is ever so inspiring Ms Jacquii. These biographies are brilliant for National Poetry Month! Thank you for posting!

    Hah! I found the big book of Emily in Mr. Kay's last week for $ 8.00 and snatched it up! 1,775 poems to be exact. Astounding! She has been one of my favorites since the beginning...uh, 1974 to be exact.
