Emily Dickinson, one of the greatest American poets, was born on this day in 1830.
She's best (but not exclusively) known for such poems as “Because I could not stop for Death,” “‘Hope’ is the thing with feathers,” “I felt a Funeral, in my Brain,” and “A Bird, came down the Walk.”
In honor of the occasion, we've rounded up some coverage of Dickinson, her work, and the content she inspired.
