I was walking through the streets of New York City, in an effort to get a better view of the city, and as I passed through the historic downtown, a painting that I had not seen in a long time suddenly struck me.
The painting was by a woman named Emily Dickinson, who was the inspiration for one of my favorite works of fiction, The Catcher in the Rye.
A few years earlier, when I was in high school, I had read The Cat, a classic work of literature about the romantic life of a young woman in her twenties who becomes a writer.
It is the story of a woman who meets a man, and their love blossoms into a marriage.
The Cat is a great book, but I don’t want to write about it anymore.
And when I read the novel, I was struck by its themes of love, and how they relate to the lives of modern men.
So I looked at the painting, and it reminded me of Emily Dickinson.
She is sitting in a room on a balcony, facing away from a river.
There are trees growing on the riverbank.
There is a beautiful sunset.
And it’s her husband, Abraham Lincoln, sitting on the balcony looking out across the river, writing The Cat in a notebook.
The sky is blue, the trees are green, and the sun is shining brightly.
I was stunned by this.
But I was not surprised.
I am not a poet.
I do not have a style.
I don�t have an overarching concept.
And I am also not a woman.
And yet, as I looked closer at the image, I realized that I was seeing the essence of a poem.
And as I read it more closely, I began to see that the woman who I was watching was Emily Dickinson herself.
For the past two years, I have been studying Emily Dickinson and her work, and now, after years of studying it, I can say that I am finally ready to share what I have learned with the world.
Emily Dickinson is one of the great poets of the 20th century, and for most of her life, she was one of America�s great artists.
She was also a woman of great power, and a woman with great stories to tell.
Today, Emily Dickinson’s legacy is largely forgotten.
But her life and work remain an essential part of our national memory.
To understand her work and her legacy, it helps to understand how Emily Dickinson lived, worked, and lived out her poetry.
Emily was born in 1791 in a village in Pennsylvania.
Her family had little land and little hope for the future.
She grew up in poverty and loneliness.
Emily’s family settled in a cottage, which they would spend most of their time in.
Emily worked as a farmhand, and eventually moved into her own house.
Her work as a writer was not much of a success.
She struggled to write her stories, and she had a hard time finding a publisher.
But one day, Emily got a call from her aunt, who invited her to write an essay.
Emily had been living in poverty in her family�s cottage for years, and had been a housewife and mother for years.
As she prepared for her essay, Emily wrote to her aunt that she was sick of poverty.
Emily, however, could not leave her cottage.
She went to the woods to help with the chores, and her aunt invited her back to live in the cottage with her.
After a year, Emily and her family moved into the new house.
But it was a strange place to live.
The woods were a mess, the walls were painted with pictures of dead animals, and Emily had to work in the kitchen, cooking and cleaning.
Emily found that she did not want to be a house wife and mother anymore.
She started to write poems, which she called “The Cat in the House.”
She began to write a lot, and one of her poems, The Great Flood of 1799, was published in 1799.
I think it�s one of those poems that you can read in a class at the library.
But when you look at it, it is very clear that Emily had just come out of a period of very little work and she was trying to figure out how to do it again.
She wrote another poem, The New York and Its Landscape, in 1805.
Emily�s work as an artist has been one of its greatest gifts to America, and to the world at large.
I can think of few people who have had a greater influence on the history of art and literature than Emily Dickinson; her poetry is among the most influential, both in the United States and worldwide.
The New Yorker once described Emily Dickinson as a ”man who is all things, who is a poet, a writer, a painter, a poetess, a satirist, a novelist, and an explorer of life.”
It is a powerful statement, because Emily Dickinson was one woman who, while she wrote, wrote many
