Emily Dickinson saw only five of her poems published in her lifetime. After her death in 1886 her sister discovered almost two thousand more poems - sewn neatly into small bundles and packed away in a trunk in Emily's bedroom. Today, she is regarded as one of the greatest poets of Western literary history. Radio program featuring Dickinson scholars Joan Kirkby, Roger Lundin, Thomas Moore, and Gregory Orr.
