Emily Dickinson

The American poet Emily Dickinson wrote nearly 1,800 poems, however very few were published in her lifetime.

In her interview on the best American poetry, Professor Elisa New recommended viewing Dickinson’s poems in the Emily Dickinson Archive. “We no longer live in a world with much handwriting. But penmanship is a form of self-presentation that writers once thought about while crafting their work. Dickinson’s poems work as visual, as well as verbal, art. So this archive allows you to experience her work more fully than would an ordinary anthology.”
