Robert Frost

Emily Elizabeth Dickinson (December 10, 1830 – May 15, 1886) was an American poet.While Dickinson was a prolific private poet, fewer than a dozen of her nearly 1,800 poems were published during her lifetime. The work that was published during her lifetime was usually 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 use slant rhyme as well as unconventional capitalization and punctuation. Many of her poems deal with themes of death and immortality, two recurring topics in letters to her friends.

      The Poetry Foundation offers an excellent description of Dickinson's life and poetry. It is especially good in explaining how Dickinson's education, family and reading of other poets influenced her writing.
    • Emily Dickinson Museum
      This site offers links to explanations of her poetry and her work habits. Dickinson wrote in her room until late in the night. She also read her poems to family members, who were surprised after her death to find many poems bound in little books. Her poetry was first published in the 1890's and was well received by the reading public, who appreciated the depth of meanings in the poems.
    • offers a short, well written biography. The site is a bit commercial.
