Dickinson, Emily: The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson

This complete compendium of Emily Dickenson's poetry offers the reader a vivid portrait of one of Massachusetts' most famous and enigmatic poets. Although a greatly talented writer, Emily Dickenson lived most of her life in private seclusion, in contrast to the culture of the time which emphasized community and socializing. Throughout her life, Emily's family ensured her care and comfort; she lived a life characterized by quiet self-seclusion. Emily's early life ensured a great standard of education, with her aunts in particular noting her inclination toward musical and literary interests. Contemporary scholars generally agree that Emily Dickenson's isolation was chiefly the result of a persistent depression. The death of a school principal she admired, and of several friends, plummeted her toward isolation during the prime of her life. Despite her illness, she managed to travel with her family to see life beyond her hometown of Amhurst and publish a few of her poems.

Über den Autor Dickinson, Emily

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) was born in Amherst, Massachusetts. After an unusually thorough education for a woman of her time, she began writing poems that drew on her wide knowledge of literature, scripture, and the political discourse of her day. Dickinson fell in love several times during her life but never married, preferring instead to live an increasingly secluded life. She entrusted a number of poems to a well-known editor but published only one poem under her name during her lifetime. With the posthumous publication of her work she was soon recognized as one of the world's great poets.
