Although a greatly talented writer, Emily Dickinson lived most of her life in private seclusion, in contrast to the culture of the time which emphasized community and socializing. Throughout her life, Emily's family ensured her care and comfort; she lived a life characterized by quiet self-seclusion. Emily's early life ensured a great standard of education, with her aunts in particular noting her inclination toward musical and literary interests. Emily Dickenson's poetry is regarded as among the greatest examples of American writing. This celebratory gift edition with silk cloth, lovely full colour illustrations, foil blocking and in a gift slipcase is the perfect gift for every Emily Dickenson lover.
