Born in Amherst, Massachusetts, Emily Dickinson is one of the most well-known of American 19th century poets. Her unique and unorthodox approach to poetry made her a popular literary figure then and her work continues to influence many poets and other writers today. Some of her most famous works include poems such as "This is My Letter to the World" and "Wild Nights! Wild Nights!", among over 1,500 other poems she wrote. The first complete collection of her works published was marred by editing which disrupted the original language and flow of her poetry. Then in 1955 her complete unedited works were published in their original form for Dickinson fans to enjoy in their entirety.
