Emily Elizabeth Dickinson was born in 1830 in Amherst, Massachusetts. Rightly regarded as a major American poet, her life was sheltered, introverted, and reclusive. Despite writing over eighteen hundred poems, only a dozen or so were published during her lifetime. Her structure and wording is at times difficult to get to grips with, though recurring themes of religion and death certainly shadow many of her works. At her death is 1886 it is likely her work might have been lost had it not been for a publication by her sister. Indeed, it wasn’t until the 1950s that a complete and unedited collection of her works was published. In the ensuing half-century, she has gradually climbed into the pantheon of greats.

These great poems are brought to your ears by Patricia Rodriguez, Richard Mitchely, Tim Graham, Gideon Wagner, and Ghizela Rowe.

About the Author

Emily Dickinson (1830–1886) was born in Amherst, Massachusetts. Throughout her life, she seldom left her house, and visitors were scarce. The people with whom she did come in contact, however, had an enormous impact on her thoughts and poetry. By the 1860s, she lived in almost total physical isolation from the outside world but actively maintained many correspondences and read widely. Her poetry reflects her loneliness, and the speakers of her poems generally live in a state of want, but her poems are also marked by the intimate recollection of inspirational moments which are decidedly life-giving and suggest the possibility of happiness. The first volume of her work was published posthumously in 1890 and the last in 1955.
