Did you ever wonder what it was like for a woman to live in the 1800’s?

In Emily Dickinson's lifetime, she was an unknown talent (except to a select few she had chosen to share her expressions of life with) that had only seven poems published while she was alive, and the poems that were published were probably all done so without her immediate knowledge or consent (Bloom 12). Her poems show two different sides of her: some an `irreverent little girl' and others `a grief-stricken, mature woman' (---. 8). When examining poems by Emily Dickinson, you see how the pain in her life and the heartbreak she felt and witnessed contributed to many of the over two thousand poems she wrote during her 56 years of life.

Lowell was an Imagist poet, and by doing so, she has created a scene with as few words as possible.

All three did see some of their poetry published before taking to their final resting place, but Emily published only one novel. Anne only published two, but the second novel The Tenant of Wildfell Hall was a much larger work than her first. Charlotte saw three of her novels published, Shirley, Villette, and Jane Eyre, and the fourth, The Professor, was released after her death. Charlotte was obviously the more productive one, but she lived to be 39, while Anne died at 29 and Emily at 30.
