As a result of life of solitude, she was able to focus on her world more sharply than other authors of her time. She (the second daughter of Edward and Emily Norcross Dickinson), was born on December 10, 1830 in Massachusetts, into the quiet community of Amherst. Emily and her sisters nurtured in a quiet family, when always her mother was not emotionally accessible.
