Emily Dickinson

Her poetry reflects on her loneliness. The speakers of her poems usually live in a state of want. When she died, Dickinson's family discovered 40 handbound volumes of nearly 1800 of her poems. I think that her poem "Because I could not stop for Death" states that death is unavoidable. She does not state that death is a bad thing. It seems slowly and slowly she is moving towards death.
