Emily Dickinson Biography
Written by Carly Fullerlove
Emily Dickinson was born December 30th, 1830 in Amherst, Massachusetts. Not a terrible lot about her was known because of her reclusive tendencies she had toward the outside world. She never married, and after 1864, she was barely seen by anyone except her close family. The reason being she went to stay with her cousins in Boston to see and eye doctor where she wasn’t allowed to read or right. It was the last time she ever left Amherst. She was a gifted poet, singer, and artist, though none of her works were published until 7 years after her death. Her writing was known to not stay within the narrow-minded lines of the literary-based establishment. This was a lot of the reason she chose to stay inside her home and keep to herself; avoiding the expected behaviors and duties that women were to perform in the 1800’s. A lot of her work touched on topics such as death, love and loss, loneliness, and seclusion. The reason for this being that through-out her life, she experienced a lot of sorrow. Her father was restrictive of her reading and writing materials as a child, and in 1874, her father died suddenly. She stopped going out in public at this time and kept up her social live via correspondence. One of the most important people in her life was Charles Wadsworth. She fell in love with him, but he had a wife at the time. This influenced one of her most famous poems, “I’m nobody, who are you?” Just a few short years after her father’s death, Charles died, as well as her dear friend Samuel Bowles. Later that year her mother was taken by the illness she had been fighting for 8 years. Unexpectedly, a year later, her only nephew died. At this time, most of her darker poems were written. She fell ill at this time and fought it for 3 years, but she was succumbed to her illness of Bight’s disease on May 15th, 1886. Her doctor came to the conclusion that the amount of stress throughout her life was a primary cause to her early death. After her death, her only sister Vinnie had been instructed to burn her all of her poems and letters if found, but refused. While looking, she came across a box of 1,700 of Emily’s poems. In 1893, her first edition of poems was published. She became one of the most well-known poets in history.
