Emily Dickinson

painting of Emily Dickinson

Emily Dickinson was an American poet who was born to a very successful family. as of today, Dickinson is know as one of the American's greatest poets. since the women didn't have much of a freedom during her lifetime, only a few of her poems were published. what unique about her writing was her poems was written with out a tittle and her choice of words were precise. i like her poem of "if i can stop one heart from breaking" "i shall not live in vain" i liked this poem because i kind of feel like in this poem she is expressing herself as to what kind of person she is and she seems to me as person who suffered a lot of depression.
