The Gothic Movement heavily influenced Emily Dickinson’s poetry. Literature often reflects the writer’s emotions about an event that are taking place at that time period. For example, the Gothic Movement appeared in the late 18th century as a branch of the Romantic Movement within the arts.

Personal response to the poetry of Emily Dickinson After studying six poets on my Leaving Certificate course I can say that the work of Emily Dickinson, is one that appeals the most to me. She can give me a journey of variety of emotions while showing the intensity of emotions in every poem of hers I have studied. Studying her poems in depth made me appreciate her unique vision and memorable style. In both, ‘I felt a funeral in my brain’ and ‘I heard a fly buzz- when I died’, we can see her describing a mental breakdown and death. We can see moments of ecstasy and depression in ‘The soul has bandaged moments’.
Poetry is the art of putting feelings on paper with specific diction, rhythm, and style that Authors choses to make readers comprehend what the speaker is trying to express. There are many famous American authors but one of my favorites is Emily Elizabeth Dickinson. She was born in Amherst, Massachusetts on December 10, 1830 and died in the same place but on May 15 of 1886. My favorite poem that she wrote is, “This is my letter to the world” because with my perspective of the poem I felt somehow identified with the feelings on it.. The voice of this poem is extremely personal because the speaker seems to be Emily herself making the poem more interesting to read and analyze.
The volume Ariel is one of the last poems of her academic period. The theme of this volume is concerned with same old conflict and contradictions between love and hate, life and death in her personal as well as universal terms. Her thesaurus was her main source of inspiration. The distinguishingly smart and efficient wording of her early poetry takes one way from the actual Plath to different etymological sources or literary influences. She achieves the magic of poetic glory simply by the force of ordinary colloquial speech.
