Emily Dickinson
December 10, 1830 – May 15, 1886


Emily Elizabeth Dickinson
was an American poet.
She spent almost all her life in Amherst, Massachusetts, where she was born and where she lived a mostly introverted and reclusive life.
Thought of as an eccentric by the locals, she became known for her penchant for white clothing and her reluctance to greet guests or, later in life, even leave her room. Most of her friendships were therefore carried out by correspondence.
Dickinson's poems are unique for the era in which she wrote; they contain short lines, typically lack titles, and often use slant rhyme as well as unconventional capitalization and punctuation.
Many of her poems deal with themes of death and immortality, two recurring topics in letters to her friends.
It was not until after her death at 56 that her collections of poetry were published.
