Known for her wit and preference for seclusion, 19th-century poet Emily Dickinson rarely left her home in Amherst, Massachusetts, choosing instead to write quietly from the confines of her bedroom. The author of such famous first lines as "Tell all the Truth but tell it slant" and "This is my letter to the World," Emily Dickinson is today one of the most beloved and widely studied American poets.
