Emily Dickinson is widely considered one of the greatest poets in American literature. Her unique, gemlike lyrics are distillations of profound feeling and original intellect outside the mainstream of 19th-century American literature.

Hundreds of scholars have tried to explain the life and work of Emily Dickinson, but the famously reclusive poet remains an enigma.

Born in 1830 in Amherst, Mass, to a prominent New England family, Dickinson wrote the first of her nearly 1,800 poems when she was about 20 years old.

Although she shared some of her work with relatives and close friends, only a handful of her poetry was published during her lifetime. At 23, she began to withdraw from the world outside her home, dressing only in white and isolating herself in her room.

Dickinson is famous for her short, evocative poems. Some of her best-known poems begin, "There is no frigate like a book," "Because I could not stop for Death / He kindly stopped for me," "I never saw a moor," and "I'm nobody! Who are you?"

Who was Emily Dickinson, really? Perhaps it is this unanswerable question which makes her such a modern mystery.
