Emily Dickinson
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation search From the daguerreotype taken at Mount Holyoke , December 1847 or early 1848. It is the only authenticated portrait of Emily Dickinson later than childhood. Emily Dickinson December 10 May 15 ) was an American poet . Born in Amherst, Massachusetts to a successful family with strong community ties, she lived a mostly introverted and reclusive life. After being schooled at the Amherst Academy for seven years in her youth, she spent a short time at Mount Holyoke Female Seminary before retiring to her family's house, the Homestead . Throughout her adult life she rarely traveled outside of Amherst or very far from home. 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 was a prolific private poet, choosing to publish fewer than a dozen of her nearly eighteen hundred poems. The work that was published during her lifetime was typically altered significantly by the publishers to fit the conventional poetic rules of the time. Dickinson's poems are unique for the era in which she wrote; they contain short lines, typically lack titles, and often utilize slant rhyme as well as unconventional capitalization and punctuation.

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American lyrical poet, a recluse, nicknamed the "nun of Amherst" - only seven of Dickinson's some 1800 poems were published during her lifetime, five of them in the Springfield Republican . Dickinson never married. She withdrew from social contact and devoted herself in secret into writing. I felt a Cleaving in my Mind -

Emily Dickinson was born in Amherst, Massachusetts, to a family well known for educational and political activity. Her father, an orthodox Calvinist, was a lawyer and treasurer of the local college. He also served in Congress. Dickinson's mother, whose name was also Emily, was a cold, religious, hard-working housewife, who suffered from depression. Her relationship with her daughter was distant. Later Dickinson wrote in a letter, that she never had a mother. Dickinson was educated at Amherst Academy (1834-47) and Mount Holyoke Female Seminary (1847-48). Around 1850 she started to compose poems - "Awake ye muses nine, sing me a strain divine, / Unwind the solemn twine, and tie my Valentine!" she said in her earliest known poem, dated March 4, 1850. It was published in

Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886)
Emily Elizabeth Dickinson was born on December 10, 1830 in the quiet community of Amherst, Massachusetts, the second daughter of Edward and Emily Norcross Dickinson. Emily, Austin (her older brother) and her younger sister Lavinia were nurtured in a quiet, reserved family headed by their authoritative father Edward. Throughout Emily's life, her mother was not "emotionally accessible," the absence of which might have caused some of Emily's eccentricity. Being rooted in the puritanical Massachusetts of the 1800's, the Dickinson children were raised in the Christian tradition, and they were expected to take up their father's religious beliefs and values without argument. Later in life, Emily would come to challenge these conventional religious viewpoints of her father and the church, and the challenges she met with would later contribute to the strength of her poetry. The Dickinson family was prominent in Amherst. In fact, Emily's grandfather, Samuel Fowler Dickinson, was one of the founders of Amherst College, and her father served as lawyer and treasurer for the institution. Emily's father also served in powerful positions on the General Court of Massachusetts, the Massachusetts State Senate, and the United States House of Representatives. Unlike her father, Emily did not enjoy the popularity and excitement of public life in Amherst, and she began to withdraw. Emily did not fit in with her father's religion in Amherst, and her father began to censor the books she read because of their potential to draw her away from the faith.

Emily Dickinson
"Fame is a fickle food upon a shifting plate."
Emily Dickinson was born in Amherst, Massachusetts on December 10,1830. Emily was one of the greatest poets of her time. She only published 7 poems in her life time. Emily's brother married Susan Gilbert, her close friend, and later Susan became the one person Emily would read her poems to. When Emily wrote, she did not care about money or fame. When she died on May 15, 1886, of kidney disease, on her death bed she told her sister to burn all of her poems. So her sister had the poems published, and burned the originals! Emily Dickinson dared to be different many times in her life. For example, in her writing, she followed her own feelings and wrote about things she cared about from her life. Unlike most people of her time, Emily did not care about fame or money when she was writing. To her, to experience the sun rise and the sun set was a fortune of its own. Emily once said, "People say a word dies when it is written by the pen, but for me that word's life is just about to begin". And true to her word, Emily's poems lived on. Emily's poems have touched many lives with their beauty, wonder, and exquisite words, along with their ecstatic point of view. All in all, Emily Dickinson in her life, writing, and very existence, dared to be different.

Emily Elizabeth Dickinson
O nly about a dozen of her own poems were published during Emily Dickinson's lifetime, most of them anonymously and without her permission. Emily enjoyed word-play and riddles, and fittingly so since she herself is something of a riddle and a mystery. Her life is very much open to speculation, legend and myth simply because little is known about it. The single known existing photograph of her was taken when she was seventeen years old. Her over 1,700 short poems were created without any apparent pattern or progression, and they contain no titles or dates. Dickinson was born on December 10, 1830 in Amherst, Massachusetts. Her mother was Emily Norcross, and her father Edward Dickinson was a prominent lawyer and businessman, and later a Representative in Congress. Emily had an older brother named Austin and a younger sister, Lavinia. The Dickinson family were firm believers in education, for women as well as men. Emily's grandfather had helped found Amherst College. Therefore, her parents made sure she was educated in excellent schools such as the Amherst Academy and later Mount Holyoke Female Seminary. Dickinson has been described during her adolescent years as a shy, demure, neatly dressed young woman often wearing or bearing flowers. "Had we the first intimation of the Definition of Life, the calmest of us would be lunatics!" ~ Dickinson in a letter to cousins ~

Biography of Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)
from Michael Myers, Thinking and Writing About Literature The Dickinsons were well known in Massachusetts. Her father ws a lawyer and served as the treasurer of Amherst College (a position Austin eventually took up as well), and her grandfather was one of the college's founders. Although nineteenth-century politics, economics, and social issues do not appear in the foreground of her poetry, Dickinson lived in a family environment that was steeped in them: her father was an active town official and served in the General Court of Massachusetts, the State Senate, and the United States House of Representatives. Dickinson, however, withdrew not only from her father's public world but also from almost all social life in Amherst. She refused to see most people, and aside from a single year at South Hadley Female Seminary (now Mount Holyoke College), one excursion to Philadelphia and Washington, and several brief trips to Boston to see a doctor about eye problems, she lived all her life in her father's house. She dressed only in white and developed a reputation as a reclusive eccentric. Dickinson selected her own society carefully and frugally. Like her poetry, her relationship to the world was intensely reticent. Indeed, during the last twenty years of her life she rarely left the house. Though Dickinson never married, she had significant relationships with several men who were friends, confidantes, and mentors. She also enjoyed an intimate relationship with her friend Susan Huntington Gilbert, who became her sister-in-law by marrying Austin. Susan and her husband lived next door and were extremely close with Dickinson. Biographers have attempted to find in a number of her relationships the source for the passion of some of her love poems and letters, but no biographer has been able to identify definitely the object of Dickinson's love. What matters, of course, is not with whom she was in loveif, in fact, there was any single personbut that she wrote about such passions so intensely and convincingly in her poetry.

Emily Dickinson (1830-86): Poems
Emily Dickinson wrote a highly idiosyncratic poetry on the joy and pain of existence. Her poetry is compressed, sharp, but sometimes ambiguous. She is exciting because she combines passion with intellectual wit. In "After Great Pain" she refers to nerves sitting like tombs and uses "hour of lead" and "quartz contentment" as metaphors of special awareness of emotional hurt. In "Because I Could not Stop for Death," she personifies death as a kindly gentleman taking a lady for a ride and on their journey they pass the vitality of life en route to eternity. In "Wild Nights" she displays a desire for love which combines the security of a harbor with the passion of a storm. Moored safely in her love's arms she would have no need for the tools of travel: compass, sailing chart, or winds for the sails.

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)
Emily Dickinson,"the belle of Amherst"(the Massachusetts town where she spent her entire life), is almost as famous for her mysteriously secluded life as for her poetry, which ranks her with Walt Whitman as one of the most gifted poets in American literature. She never married, and after age 30 she almost never saw anyone outside of her immediate family. Some scholars believe that this was her response to the narrow literary establishment of her time, which expected female writers to limit their subjects to the domestic and the sentimental. Author of over 1700 poems, only 10 were published in her lifetime, and these without her permission. After her death, however, her sister found and published the body of her work.
