Dickinson, Emily: Emily Dickinson

A selection of poems from one of America's most iconic poets

American poet Emily Dickinson is revered around the world, and influenced many feminist artists and writers. Her work is some of the best known and most quoted or adapted:

'Hope is the thing with feathers, that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all' Emily Dickinson


Dickinson received a very good education, but chose to return home to Amherst, Massachusetts, 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 meant that only a tiny fraction of her work was published in her lifetime. Even today, her work feels startlingly modern:

'Dogs are better than human beings because they know but do not tell' Emily Dickinson

'The dearest ones of time, the strongest friends of the soul - BOOKS'

This is a superb collection from a truly iconic poet.

Über den Autor Dickinson, Emily

Emily Dickinson (1830-86) was born in Amherst, Massachusetts, the daughter of a lawyer and politician. Relatively unknown during her life, partly due to her intensely private, almost reclusive, nature, she has seen become recognised as one of the most important figures in American literature. It was not until her sister discovered a cache of poems after Emily's death that her work became public.
