Emily Dickinson in general Reviews
Description:Author: Emily Dickinson
Newest Review: ... (seasonal associated disorder). This is shown be her obvious dislike for winter in the majority of her poems and the desire for the onset of summer. Her religious connotations (often slight and needs delving to find) have indications of attacking the church and various calvanistic points of view. It isn't really what Dickinson writes about that's unique, it's how she writes it. ... more

Why the title? Well you see it featured a dash - It is one- characteristic - Dickinson. Wheather it is deliberate or not Emily Dickinson's unique blend of obscure language and tranquil settings is perfectly a journey of life. Her naturlistic poems are obvious homages to Blake, whilst her slightly strange poems regarding Death are unique 100% to Emily Dickinson. I am only studying 16 of her hundreds of poems, which means I have a limited knowledge of the poet yet what I do study features death and the system of the seasons rather dramatically. Emily likes to express journey's in her poems, in the poem headed "Because I could not stop ... Read the complete review

While studying English at AS and A2 level holds many delights: 1) Studying the hilarious satires of Ben Jonson and Evelyn Waugh 2) Reading interesting and exciting American literature and plays like 'Streetcar Named Desire' and 'The Great Gatsby' 3) Having relaxed lessons-usually with a mug of coffee near by 4) Having a really good laugh (although this is not always so good-one of my teachers brings the house down, with the sheer volume of his laughter) 5) Making up absolute b*llocks that the teacher can only say 'Ermm, ok, interesting point that, not sure I agree but original!' ...there are some atrocities: ...

Dickinson’s apparent obsession with death is unnerving to the casual poetry reader. Her unorthodoxy of approach heightens the barriers to appreciation of her remarkable body of work. Her poems were not intended by her for publication, and indeed were published only posthumously, which goes some way to explaining her idiosyncrasies as a poet - the poems’ lack of titles, their being punctuated with frequent dashes and her seemingly irregular capitalisations. To see beyond these characteristics is to peer into a troubled mind; Dickinson’s neuroses are at the forefront of many of her poems (“I felt a Funeral, in my Brain”), but her ...

I have decided to write an opinion on my favourite lady poet of all time, Emily Elizabeth Dickinson. She was, apparently, a lovely lady and as it was found only after her death in 1886, also an extremely talented poet. She was born in Amherst, Massachusetts in 1830. Her father was a congressman and in his house she was in constant contact with churchmen, politicians, writers and scholars. It is believed that as a result of an unhappy love affair she became a recluse sometime after 1854. Whatever the reason was for her recluses, she dedicated herself entirely to poetry. The depth of her dedication did not become apparent, however, until her ... Read the complete review
