(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

This collection of classic Emily Dickenson poems in includes the following titles: The sun - as common - went abroad -The flowers - accustomed - blew, As if no soul - that solstice passed -Which maketh all things - newEmily Elizabeth Dickinson (December 10, 1830 - May 15, 1886) was an American poet.Dickinson was born in Amherst, Massachusetts into a prominent family with strong ties to its community. After studying at the Amherst Academy for seven years in her youth, she briefly attended the Mount Holyoke Female Seminary before returning to her family's house in Amherst.Dickinson lived much of her life in reclusive isolation. Considered an eccentric by locals, she developed a noted penchant for white clothing and became known for her reluctance to greet guests or, later in life, to even leave her bedroom. Dickinson never married, and most friendships between her and others depended entirely upon correspondence. She was a recluse for the later years of her life. 2]While Dickinson was a prolific private poet, fewer than a dozen of her nearly 1,800 poems were published during her lifetime. 3] The work that was published during her lifetime was usually altered significantly by the publishers to fit the conventional poetic rules of the time. Her poems are unique for the era in which she wrote; they contain short lines, typically lack titles, and often use slant rhyme as well as unconventional capitalization and punctuation. 4] Many of her poems deal with themes of death and immortality, two recurring topics in letters to her friends.Although Dickinson's acquaintances were most likely aware of her writing, it was not until after her death in 1886-when Lavinia, Dickinson's younger sister, discovered her cache of poems-that the breadth of her work became apparent to the public. Her first collection of poetry was published in 1890 by personal acquaintances Thomas Wentworth Higginson and Mabel Loomis Todd, though both heavily edited the content. A complete, and mostly unaltered, collection of her poetry became available for the first time when scholar Thomas H. Johnson published The Poems of Emily Dickinson in 1955.Emily Elizabeth Dickinson (December 10, 1830 - May 15, 1886) was an American poet.Dickinson was born in Amherst, Massachusetts, into a prominent family with strong ties to its community.
