Dickinson was born in Amherst, Massachusetts and attended both Mount Holyoke Female Seminary and Amherst (which her grandfather founded). However, Dickinson was sick for most of her life, and later left school due to health problems and returned home. Dickinson lived the rest of her life in her family home, spending most of her time alone in her bedroom. During her life, little was known about her literary talent, but after her death, her sister found her 1,800 poems. A family friend helped type and posthumously publish her poems, and Dickinson is now regarded as one of the most important figures in American poetry.
