Emily Dickinson; her life and work
There was a little lady just a hundred miles north in Amherst, Mass., who went on writing magnificent poetry in near isolation for years, including love poems to men she had met only a few times in company, whose imagination encompassed a world known primarily from books. Note her famous line: "My wars are laid away in books." This is a lady who refused to leave her house or even her room from her early 40s until she died at 55.
