Her work has encouraged modern poets to experiment with their language and form due to her altering of traditional form and thought (Huffstutler 3). Emily Dickinson proved time and time again to be worthy of her title as one of the best poets in American history. She not only contains all the essential qualities of a good poet, but she also contains rare qualities that make her stand out. Dickinson played a huge role in earning her title, but she did not earn it by herself. Dickinson’s life, from great tragedies to loving family members and famous poets, greatly inspired her poetry.
In the latter part of her life she rarely left her large brick house, and communicated even to her beloved sister through a door often left "slightly ajar." This seclusion gave her a reputation for eccentricity to the local towns' people, and perhaps increased her interest in death (The Belle Of Amherst, Dickinson). Some knew Dickinson in Amherst as, "the New England mystic,". Her only contact to her few friends and correspondents was through a series of letters, seen as some authors and critics to be equal not only in number to her poetic works, but in literary genius as well (Introduction Dickinson). Explored thoroughly in her works, death seems to be a dominating theme through out Dickinson's life.
