Emily Dickinson

Emily Dickinson was a woman who loved to create poetry that was not like the poetry that her contemporaries wrote. Her writings were very different, and though many people thought that her poems were strange, she stuck to her convictions and created what was true to her. You will find reviews of books that are about other strong-minded women in the Biographies section and in the Women's History Month Feature.
