Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)
Emily Dickinson was born on December 10, 1830 in Amherst, MA. Born into a well-off and well-educated, Emily continued the tradition of education. She never wed, and lived out her life with her family. She left the house very little, but corresponded with many. She was a companion to her sister Lavinia, who also never wed. In her life, less then 10 of her poems were published. Even so, posthumously, Dickinson's poems have made an enormous impact on literature since. She was certainly, one of the best female poets - ever.

Emily Dickinson Reading List
I NEVER saw a moor
by Emily Dickinson
I NEVER saw a moor,
I never saw the sea;
Yet know I how the heather looks,
And what a wave must be.
I never spoke with God,
Nor visited in heaven;
Yet certain am I of the spot
As if the chart were given.
