Explanation:

[STC00999] Emily Dickinson was born on December 10, 1830, in Amherst, Massachusetts, and spent the majority of her life in the same house in which she was born. ‘Homestead’ on Amherst’s Main Street was likely the first brick house in Amherst and built for her grandparents. Dickinson started composing poetry in the late 1850s, but she remained a reclusive figure until the time of her death in 1886, and her work was not very well recognized at that time. After her passing, her sister Lavinia went through her belongings and found approximately 1,800 of her poetry. She insisted that they be published after her passing. After some time, Emily Dickinson came to be recognized as one of the most significant writers in the United States, and her home, the Emily Dickinson House, is now designated as a National Historic Landmark.
