      After great pain, a formal feeling comes After great pain, a formal feeling comes— The Nerves sit ceremonious, like tombs— The stiff Heart questions "was it He, that bore, And "Yesterday, or Centuries before"? Great news! Dickinson's great poetic achievement was not fully realized until years after her death, even though Dickinson understood her own genius when she lived. When he was dying of tuberculosishe wrote to her, saying he would like to live until she achieved the greatness he foresaw.

      Though few were published in her lifetime, she sent hundreds to friends, relatives, and others—often with, or as part of, letters. In one of her poems, Emily Dickinson captures the autumn of Amherst in anatomical metaphors and paints the season on a stormy day that haemorrhages in hues of red — blood, scarlet and vermillion. For her first nine years she resided in a mansion built by her paternal grandfather, Samuel Fowler Dickinson, who had helped found Amherst College but then went bankrupt shortly before her birth. What had been in danger was her emotional balance and her control over her intense talent.
