Emily Dickinson was born on December 10th, 1830 and died May 15th, 1886 from terminal illness. Dickinson isolated herself many times to compose her poetry.
After she passed away, her sister found many of Emily’s poems hidden away in a drawer, she then published them. Critics proclaimed Dickinson’s writings as “isolated and private self poetry.”
