Thomas Wentworth Higginson, the man of letters to whom Emily Dickinson first entrusted her poems, was dumbfounded by them, and asked, "What place ought to be assigned in literature to what is so remarkable, yet so elusive of criticism?" His question was answered only after Dickinson's death: She is now considered one of America's greatest poets. Her terse, oblique, visionary poems have almost no relation to the conventions of the second half of the 19th century, when they were written.

EMILY DICKINSON

EMILY DICKINSON

Emily Dickinson (Amherst, Massachusets, 1830-1886). Poetisa estadounidense. Pasó gran parte de su vida recluida en una habitación de la casa de su padre en su Amherst natal. Autora de una obra sencilla y profunda que la ha situado en el panteón de poetas fundacionales estadounidenses que hoy comparte con Edgar Allan Poe, Ralph Waldo Emerson y Walt Whitman. Excepto cinco de sus poemas (tres de ellos publicados sin su firma y otro sin que la autora lo supiera), su ingente obra permaneció oculta e inédita hasta después de su muerte. Ver ficha del autor
