December 10: Emily Dickinson
On this date in 1830, Emily Dickinson was born. Her poetry is unconventional for the nineteenth century in which she wrote. Her poems deal with themes of life, death, love, nature, time, and eternity. Our audiobooks contain over 250 of her poems.
Dickinson, the Gardener
During her lifetime, Dickinson “was known more widely as a gardener, perhaps, than as a poet” according to Judith Farr. She and her sister tended the garden. Dickinson would often send friends flowers with poems attached. Enjoy nearly 5,000 flower and shrub illustrations from the ClipArt ETC website.
