Essay title: Emily Dickenson
Hello, my name is Emily Elizabeth Dickinson. I was born in Amherst Massachusetts in 1830. I was not very close with my mother and father. I had an older brother Austin who was kind of bossy, and a younger sister, Lavinia who was very protective of me because I was shy as a child. I attended Mount Holyoke Female Seminary which was an institution of higher education in South Hadely. I only stayed at this school for one year because I did not like being away from home, also because I found the high rate of socialism in the school very difficult.
After this adventure I only traveled a couple times away from home, once to Washington D.C. After these trips I stayed at home to write and read, hardly ever leaving my home. I went through a period where I wore only white dresses, and stayed inside the house only going out to attend to my garden. Most of the things I wrote were letters to my family and friends.
I fell in love with many men over time, but never considered marriage. The one man that inspired me the most was named Reverend Charles Wadsworth. He was a supreme court judge. He inspired me to write many poems about love and passion. Later on my brother Austin married one of my closest friends, Susan Huntington.
