Awards Given To Emily Dickinson
Emily Dickenson was a famous American writer born in Massachusetts. She wrote almost 1,775 poems during her lifetime but titled only 24 of her writings. While she was alive, she only sent her work to her family members and friends and published hardly ten of them. Hence, she did not receive any awards during her lifetime.
After her death in the year 1886, her younger sister, Lavinia, discovered her work, which was edited by Thomas Wentworth Higginson and Mrs. Mabel Todd and published at a later date.
Emily lived an introverted and reclusive life and was known for her white clothing and her reserved nature even while greeting guests. Later, she never left “her own room”. Her poems, which she wrote in her solitude, portray her reflection into the unique and revolutionary perspectives of friendship, relationship, nature, love, life and death.
Her lines carry a lot of meaning and her works had a literary standard of her own. Her immense contribution to the language brought in a new phase of poetry with a different usage pattern of words. She broke the conventional rules and often altered words to suit the ear.
Emily did not marry though her work is filled with intensity and passion towards relationship. During her last years, she lost all her relations including her parents and her nephew. Hence, Emily’s poetries are themed quite a bit on death.
Emily suffered an attack in the year 1884 on June 14. Two years later, on May 15, 1886, she died
