Carefully, the narrator goes on to build up Emily's character with a bit more depth and precision, while also subtly carrying out... Narrative...

It was a deliberate departure from the preceding ‘Age of Reason,’ which emphasized reason, objectivity, tradition, and social conformity.

The emphasis is on spontaneity, and the original. (Harvey, 1997). Emily Dickinson (1830 – 1886), is...
