Walp 1 Elyse Walp English 130 – 4 Professor Fernando March 27, 2008 Student Lead Presentation Emily Dickinson was born in 1930 in Massachusetts and is considered one of the most significant 19 th century poets and writers, comparable to Walt Whitman, Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson. Her writing style is very different from other poets of her time period. She kept a very clear distance form the Victorian values and Calvinist traditions that most poetry of the 19 th century is based on. Her thinking is still considered very unconventional. Dickinson had many odd behavioral traits. She tended to wear the same, white dress and later in life, she was reclusive to the point where when guests were over she’d stay upstairs and send letters and little poems down in order to engage in the conversation. She died in 1886 from a kidney disorder that what called Bright’s disease at the time. At her death she had written approximately 1775 poems, most of which were stored away in the bottom drawer of her desk.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
