Hello cobblers!

Today we celebrate the work of Emily Dickinson, a well-known American poet from the 19th century.

If you haven’t read this poem in its entirety, I strongly suggest to give it a look over on Poets.org: “Because I could not stop for death- (479)”.

If you’re like me, there’s this never ending desire to learn as much about the writer as there is to learn about the work. So, for my like-minded fellows, check out a feature from The New Yorker: “Her Own Society: A new reading of Emily Dickinson”.

We’re half-way to the weekend, so keep reading to make it come faster. Cheers.
