What You'll Find Here
The website is intentionally kept simple for quick and easy access to information about the poet. Besides this one, there are only 4 pages on the website, yet these 4 pages are packed with information that is useful for readers, students, and scholars. One page, perhaps most helpful to students, offers "Fast Facts" about the poet's life and work. The "Bibliography" page is maintained in MLA (Modern Language Association) documentation style. The "Links" page, a highlight of the site, offers an extensive listing of available online Dickinson resources. A fourth page is a "Photo Album" of Dickinson-related images. News in Dickinson studies or other relevant information appears on the "Home" page.
