Emily Dickinson is considered one of the greatest poets of all time. She was born in the United States of America, in the state of Massachusetts, in the city of Amherst.
She was born in the year 1830, about 184 years ago at the time of this writing (2014).
Like most great poets, Emily Dickinson was passionate about writing, and more particularly, writing poems. It is my belief that she started studying literature from a young age and writing it as well.
Poems tend calm, soothe and evoke deep and beautiful emotions within the mind of the reader and it is this quality that make them widely loved and treasured.
Have fun reading and enjoying these wonderful poems from one of the greatest poets of all time.
