Development as a poet
This guide to the best Emily Dickinson poems is a tribute to my very favorite poet. An inventive and wildly original writer, Dickinson was known to be somewhat reclusive. She was very prolific, writing almost 1, poems, but hardly any were published until after her death. Much of her writing was found after she died by her sister, Lavinia, but even then, her poetry was often altered by editors before it was published. Her favorite subjects were big topics: death, immortality, faith, pain, grief.
