  Emily Dickinson biography:

Very little is known of Emily Elizabeth Dickinson as the American poet always kept to herself and lived a life of solitude. She was born on 10th December 1830 at Amherst, Massachusetts to Edward and Emily Norcross Dickinson. She had an older brother, Austin, and younger sister named Lavinia.

From 1834 – 1847, Emily Dickinson studied at the Amherst Academy, an academic institution that was co-founded by her grandfather, Samuel Fowler Dickinson. In 1847, she studied at the Hadley Female Seminary (now known as Mount Holyoke College) but returned to Amherst only after a year, and began her life of solitude.

After returning from the Seminary, Emily withdrew from all social contact and refused to entertain guests. She chose to dress herself only in white and spent most of her time inside her room. She started writing poems at around this time. Her initial forays were conventional but later on, she experimented until she developed her own unique style.

The 1860s contributed immensely to Emily Dickinson’s writing style and content. The US Civil War broke out in 1861; her closest friends (and were also rumored to be objects of her affection) Samuel Bowles moved to Europe for health reasons, and Charles Wadsworth was relocated to San Francisco. In addition, she also had a persistent eye trouble. Although these years were very tumultuous for Dickinson, this could also be considered as the most productive period of her life. During this time, Emily Dickinson wrote around 800 poems.

Emily Dickinson never married and died on May 15, 1886. Her poems were published posthumously by her sister, Lavinia in 1886. During her life, only seven poems were published, but Emily Dickinson has penned almost 2,000 poems.

 
   
 

Poems by Emily Dickinson

 

It's all I have to bring to-day

I Lost a World

I Cannot Live With You

If I Can Stop One Heart From Breaking

You Left Me

Come Slowly

Hope is a Thing With Feathers

Wild Night

For Each Ecstatic Instant

We play at paste

The Heart Asks

I Held a Jewel

My life closed twice before its close

The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson

Book Description

Emily Dickinson proved that brevity can be beautiful. Only now is her complete oeuvre--all 1,775 poems--available in its original form, uncorrupted by editorial revision, in one volume. Thomas H. Johnson, a longtime Dickinson scholar, arranged the poems in chronological order as far as could be ascertained (the dates for more than 100 are unknown). This organization allows a wide-angle view of Dickinson's poetic development, from the sometimes-clunky rhyme schemes of her juvenilia, including valentines she wrote in the early 1850s, to the gloomy, hell-obsessed writings from her last years. Quite a difference from requisite Dickinson entries in literary anthologies: "There's a certain Slant of light," "Wild Nights--Wild Nights!" and "I taste a liquor never brewed."
