Emily Dickinson, I think in her own way was extremely outgoing it may not have been in a social manner but the way she explores her opinions in her poems says otherwise. She was brave in how she shared these thoughts and this engages with the reader. Her ability to offer such insight in her poems despite being so secluded from outside society is remarkable. She also believed in women’s rights and equality, she was determined to be in control and independent. Her poems are a reflection of her private life, the rich language within the poems offer a great range of feeling. Dickinson was unlike any other poet at the time, her style different which can be seen through her use of grammar and punctuation. This enables the reader to understand and connect with Dickinson during this time. This creates a meaningful connection between the reader and her poems as these poems are guided into her life and what how she perceived herself and the world surrounding her. Her strong opinions during that time can now encourage women like her to speak their mind and say what they believe in without the fear of judgement and negativity. She used her mind to inspire others without giving in to societies stereotypes and social norms, her poems reflect such character. This also inspires me as she encourages me to become a more confident writer!
