Synopsis
Emily Dickinson (December 10, 1830 - May 15, 1886) was an American poet. Born in Amherst, Massachusetts to a successful family with strong community ties, she lived a mostly introverted and reclusive life. After being schooled at the Amherst Academy for seven years in her youth, she spent a short time at Mount Holyoke Female Seminary before retiring to her family's house, the Homestead. Throughout her adult life she rarely traveled outside of Amherst or very far from home. Thought of as an eccentric by the locals, she became known for her penchant for white clothing and her reluctance to greet guests or, later in life, even leave her room. Most of her friendships were therefore carried out by correspondence.

About the Author

Edmund John Millington Synge (April 16, 1871 – March 24, 1909) was an Irish playwright, poet, prose writer, and collector of folklore. He was one of the cofounders of the Abbey Theatre. He is best known for the play The Playboy of the Western World, which caused riots during its opening run at the Abbey theatre. He wrote many famous stories like "Riders to the Sea" which is often considered to be his best literary work.

Synge suffered from Hodgkin's disease, a form of cancer that was then untreatable. He died just weeks short of his 38th birthday and was at the time trying to complete his last play, The Last Black Supper. (Quote from (Quote from (Quote from wikipedia.org)))
