Full Description


Emily Dickinson (1830-86) was born in Amherst, Massachusetts, the daughter of a lawyer and politician. Despite receiving a good education she returned home to Amherst, where she spent the rest of her life, writing more than a poem a day until her death. Her refusal to compromise her highly condensed expression, which meant that only a tiny fraction of her work was published in her lifetime, makes her seem startlingly modern today
