Author's Bio (see also Wikipedia)
Retiring, quiet Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) hardly ever left the sanctuary of her home in Amherst, Massachusetts. And yet, this delicate outward appearance concealed a fiery creative spirit that was hard at work throughout her life. Although she published only a few pieces during her lifetime, a vast collection of her previously-unpublished poems, long hidden in a trunk, was at last discovered after Dickinson's death in the late 1800s. The poems, when brought to light, revealed an entirely unique and challenging artistry that no one had previously thought possible of Dickinson. Read as a full body of work, hers is poetry that simply refuses to fit any conventional expectations or easy logic, instead redefining the art itself through her clear and insistent voice.
