    His doting aunt Emily spoiled him. In her late twenties she chose to stay within her family home for the vast majority of the time instead of venturing out into the world around her. That same year, tragedy was tempered by joy when Sue Gilbert gave birth to a third child, Thomas Gilbert. Teachers recognized Emily Dickinson's particular talent for composition. Emily Elizabeth Dickinson was the middle child between her brother Austin and her younger sister Lavinia. Their correspondence would last for years and seemed to be a particularly important motivation for Dickinson.

    He married Emily Norcross in and their union produced three children. While at the Amherst Academy Dickinson's teachers recognized her talent for composition, but were also impressed with her assemblage of a large herbarium. A definitive edition of her works did not appear until the s, when T. Works The chief tension in her work comes from a different source: her inability to accept the orthodox religious faith of her day and her longing for the spiritual comfort of it. She rarely travelled and based her perceptions of her friends on their ability to write a letter back to her.

    The highly distinct and even eccentric personalities developed by the three siblings seem to have mandated strict limits to their intimacy. Only ten poems out of the she wrote were published during her lifetime. The same cannot be said about her relationship with her mother which Dickinson described as pained and unloving. Although she was encouraged by the critic Thomas Wentworth Higginson, who never comprehended her genius, and Helen Hunt Jacksonwho believed she was a great poet, Dickinson published only seven poems during her lifetime.

Dickinson never married and began to restrict her trips out of the house in her twenties. Her sister Lavinia found her books of poetry and began the process of making the poetry public.
