Born on December 10, 1830 in Amherst, Massachusetts, Emily Dickinson was a gifted and prolific American poet and writer. During her early life, she attended Amherst Academy and Mount Holyoke Female Seminary. She later lived largely secluded from the outside world.

Dickinson’s many letters and poems were published posthumously and were not fully appreciated until long after her death in May 1886. Many of her themes touched on love, nature, life and death.
