Her hair, which she described as brash like a chestnut burr, must have tended to wildness; in the school photograph, her hair lies obedient. She gazes unsmilingly at the camera, or if there is a smile, it is suppressed into one corner of her mouth. No American poet—and no woman poet writing in English—has enjoyed wider circulation, greater popularity, or more secure canonicity than Dickinson. Critics have celebrated her body of short poems as if they encapsulate structures of the psyche that transcend time and place.

In a letter written late in 1850, Emily contrasted herself with Abiah and another childhood friend. They were becoming women, engaging in good works and learning "control and firmness," but Emily loved "to be a child" and to let her imagination wander: "Oh I love the danger*" (L 39). Yet a letter Dickinson wrote to Susan Gilbert in 1852 suggests that she saw a greater danger in being a wife. "You have seen flowers at morning, satisfied with the dew," she writes. " The sweet romance of youthful female friendships gives way to addiction to male power: "They will cry for sunlight, and pine for the burning noon, tho' it scorches them, scathes them; they have got through with peace—they know that the man of noon, is mightier than the morning, and their life is henceforth to him" (L 93).
