Her artistic technique minimizes smoothness, especially its disregard for niceties of rhyme and places full emphasis on substance.

Because of her shyness, she did not circulate her work widely, and only a handful of her poems were published during her lifetime.

After her death, hundreds of her lyrical jewels were discovered and brought to life in the pages of posthumous works. Many were finished and studiously copied, while others were clearly not yet where the author wanted takes them. The first collection of Emily Dickinson’s work was published in 1890, but the third was not issued until 1945.

Her poems speak of great renunciation and hint that the “atom” she preferred was an unnamed married man, but this attachment seems to have been more a matter of introverted devotion than outgoing passion.


The daughter of a prominent lawyer, Emily Elizabeth Dickinson was born in Amherst, Massachusetts, where the spent nearly her entire life. She attended Amherst Academy and spent one year at Mary Lyon’s Female Seminary in South Hadley, now Mount Holyoke College. An extremely shy and introspective person, she remained quietly at home and did not travel, from the time she was 19 until her death. After she was 30 she withdrew more and more from casual contact with the world in order to concentrate on her writing.

Emily Dickinson’s work is remarkable for its defiance of Victorian convention, for its absolute honestly, for its intensity and for the way that the author displayed such reverence for intrinsic values.

Alarm to save a life...

No one in the world will deny a particular statement. It is none other than a saying which tells the importance of having a good health. The statement goes like this, "If health is lost, every thing is lost". It is very true. We can get back wealth, assets, friends and every other things if we lost them. But when we lose our health, we will lose everything. Therefore we have to give more prioritry to health. When it comes to elders' health like our grand father or grand mother or both of their health, we have to be even more careful about it.

Let me ask a question. What will you do when you come to know about a news that your grand father or your grand mother fell down at his / her place when he/she was alone at home?
You will get a shock ultimately right? Most of the grand parents in the world are helpless when they stay alone at home. That too when they meet with some accidents like falling down or any other things happen, they will be helpless to the extent that they cant contact any one and report about the problem.

Technology, as usual, comes here to help the man. You can now fix Alarm at your home, which will help your grand parents greatly when they are alone. There are cases where the grand parents are not even able to push a button. This Alarm would help them to get help in such situtations. Check out the web site to get more information about the new two products that ensure security to your life.

Jules Verne

Jules Verne sought to convey mystery by setting his works in places which were unfamiliar, yet believable and realistic. The Mysterious Island (1875) was set on the same, while Captain Hatteras (1866) and The Sphinx of Ice (1897) took place at the poles.

Readers also loved Jules Verne’s books because they had thrilling, fast-paced plots. In the immortal classic Around the World in Eighty Days (1873), the engaging hero Phineas Fogg is constantly in motion, never pausing for more than a couple of days in any one place, because he is taking part in the race of his lifetime.

He had an amazing insight into the trend of scientific invention, and many of his imaginary creations, from the submarine to the fax machine, were actually invented.


Jules Verne smooth, fast-paced writing style and his detailed descriptive passages truly anticipate the style of twentieth century science fiction. Riding the crest of public interest in science and invention in the nineteenth century, Verne’s books became immensely popular. Not only were they well-paced adventure stories, but they also transported readers to places they had never been. Verne focused the action of his novels in yet unexplored locations like outer space, the bottom of the ocean and deep inside the Earth, but in novels such as The Children of Captain Grant (1868), he carried his readers to South America and Australia, lands that were just as remote and exotic for most Europeans as the moon.


The father of modern science fiction, Jules Verne was born in Nates, studied law in Paries, and wrote for the stage before he began contributing science fiction to the Magazine of Education. His enormously successful Five weeks in a Balloon (1863) was the first of a long series of imaginative tales which exploited popular interest in the actual and potential achievements of nineteenth century science.

His success continued with A Journey to the Center of the Earth in 1864 and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea in 1870. The latter of which featured the legendary arch-villain Captain Nemo, skipper of the enormous submarine Nautilus.


While he was out of Russia, he wrote The Idiot (1868) and The Eternal Husband (1870) and began The Possessed. Back in St. Petersburg, he completed this tale, which attacked the embryonic Russian revolutionary movement. HE also composed the novels A Raw Youth (1875) and The Brothers Karamazov (1879-1880), his crowning achievement.

In his last years he took time off from the writing of fiction to start work on his memoirs. He commented on current events and his opinions on a wide variety of topics, including the virtues of Russian folklore and Russia’s messianic destiny. He contributed these to a conservative weekly which he edited in 1873.

The 1860s saw the beginning of a growing recognition of Whitman. The year 1871 saw the publication not only of the fifth regular edition of Leaves of Grass, but also of Democratic Vistas, a book about post-Civil War America. On February 22, 1873, in Camden. Partially recovered, he spent several summers on a nearby farm and traveled extensively in the East, the Far West (1879) and in Canada (1880). He published Specimen Days and Collect (1882) and November Boughs (1888). In 1888, another strike confined him to a wheelchair, but he continued to write and to visit with the many admirers who traveled to Camden.


Whitman refused, as a rule, to employ regular rhythms. Although his poem in conventional meter, “O Captain! My Captain!” is his most popular. His verse is not rhymed, and the line lengths are not metrical units, but units corresponding to the cadences of oral delivery.

Between 1857 and 1859, Whitman was an editor of The Brooklyn Daily Times. When the Civil War began, Whitman became a volunteer nurse in Washington, supporting himself by reporting for various newspapers and by working part time in an army paymaster’s office. After the war, he worked in the attorney general’s office.

Drum Taps, based on his war experiences, was published in 1865. Although he was never in actual combat, some scholars have called him, with some justification, “a war-born poet” because he drew so much from the soldiers he met.


Considered by some to be the greatest American poet of the nineteenth century, Walt Whitman was born in West Hills, Long Island. His temperance novel Franklin Evans; or The Inebriate was published in the magazine The New World (1842), and he also published a number of sentimental poems.

In 1848, Whitman became editor of an antislavery newspaper, The Freeman, and between 1850 and 1854, he supported himself by working for several newspapers, contributing to various periodicals, and in partnership with his father, building and selling houses.

In 1855, Whitman published the first collection of his new poetry in free verse, Leaves of Grass. It was an extraordinary publication, and is considered one of the most interesting first editions in American literature. His thoughts were influenced by that of the Quakers and of the French and American romanticists, particularly Ralph Waldo Emerson. “I was simmering, simmering,” wrote Whitman. “Emerson brought me to a boil.”


The result was Romola (1863). It was her longest and most complex work, but lacked the charm of her earlier fiction. Felix Holt, the radical (1866) was a melodramatic story of a young political reformer. Poetry in this book prepared her readers for The Spanish Gypsy (1868), a laborious effort in verse which enjoyed popularity though it never approached true poetry.

Her last works were Middlemarch (1871-1872), in which she returned to the study of provincial manners, Daniel Deronda (1876), a fictionalized view of Zionism, and Impressions of Theophrastus such (1879), was a collection of short stories. After Lewes’ death she edited some of his unpublished work and established the George Lewes scholarship to aid students engaged in scientific work. In May 1880, she married John Walter Cross, an intimate friend of both Lewes and herself, but she died in December of the same year.


George Eliot tales of country life formed the collection Scenes from Clerical Life (1858), which made her one of the most important English writers of her time. However, because of discrimination against women writers, she wrote under the pseudonym “George Eliot”.

Adam Bede (1859), her fist novel, brilliantly displayed her talent for evoking background and atmosphere, and won her an even wider audience. In 1860, she published the auto biographical Mill on the Floss, a revealing analysis of a child’s emotions and reactions. It was followed by Silas Marner (1861), a story of a country miser. In 1861 she visited Italy in search of a theme for a historical novel.


Known by her pen name, George Eliot, Mary Ann Evans was born in a village in Warwickshire and attended school in Coventry. From 1853 she was assistant editor of a local newspaper, The Westminster Review and formed close friendships with a number of distinguish writers and philosophers, notably Herbert Spencer and George Henry Lewes. She fell in love with Lewes and lived happily together until Lewes’ death in 1878; although Lewes remained married to his estranged first wife.

At the suggestion of Lewes she made her first attempt at fiction, and in 1856 produced a short story, “The Sad Fortune of the Reverend Amos Barton,” which was published in Blackwood’s Magazine (1857).
