colorized by Jecinci // Dickinson was an American poet. While Dickinson was a prolific private poet, fewer than a dozen of her nearly 1,800 poems were published during her lifetime. Her poems are unique for the era in which she wrote. A complete, and mostly unaltered, collection of her poetry became available for the first time when scholar Thomas H. Johnson published The Poems of Emily Dickinson in 1955 // source: facebook.com/jecinci
The Emily Dickinson Museum will tell you that 'The kitchen appears to be one of the rooms where [Emily] Dickinson felt most comfortable, perhaps most at home.' But the 'many drafts of poems written on kitchen papers tell us also that this was a space of creative ferment for her, and that the writing of poetry mixed in her life with the making of delicate treats.' We still have access to Dickinson's gingerbread and doughnut recipes.
