Emily Dickinson

The Poemist

Emily Dickinson was a famous poem writer. As a kid she was very frail, and was often kept home from school and club activities. As an adult, Emily lived hidden away on the second story of her parents home. Dickinson would usually dress in white clothing to mock the marriage tradition. In Emily's first 15 years of writing, she wrote 35 poems a year. In the end only 10 of Emily Dickinsons poems were published. Emily usually wrote about what she knew, and what interested her. She used images from nature, religion, law, music, medicine, fashion, and domestic activities.
