Emily Dickinson’s work does not fit conveniently into any one genre. She has been regarded as a Transcendentalist. This is the core belief is in the inherent goodness of people and nature, and while society and its institutions have corrupted the purity of the individual, people are at their best when truly “self-reliant” and independent. Perfect timing wouldn’t you say?

 

Dickinson’s poetry frequently uses humor, puns, irony and satire. She was somewhat of an enigma, quite hermit like and it is said she had an intensely passionate love affair with a female friend Susan. Throughout her life, Dickinson wrote poems reflecting a preoccupation with the teachings of Jesus Christ and,  many are addressed to him along with a fascination for death and what comes next. 

 

She is a beautiful example of a woman living in a time that wanted her caged and she expressed herself by squeezing through the cracks. What a joy she may have found 2020 to be with the lack of freedom physically and yet the freedom of expression for many so joyous, so we salute her and her beautiful poem of hope.
