Like many famed writers such as Confucius or Voltaire; Dickinson’s writings weren’t popularized for another century, when she and Walt Whitman grew to be known as the best 19th Century poets. The writer was born in December of 1830 to a devoutly Christian family in Amherst, Massachusetts. It was around the time of her birth that the transcendentalist movement exploded, and perhaps this is why she became so reclusive. It is also speculated that Dickinson suffered a romantic disappointment around this time, which is believed to also be why she retreated to such a secluded lifestyle, where she was left alone to her thoughts and writings. She withdrew from society in her teens and her only contact with others was through letters. Similarly to Lao Tzu and Henry David Thoreau, Dickinson became fascinated with nature.

Throughout academia, textbooks are commonly utilized by teachers to convey new information to students of all ages. Textbooks, therefore, have a profound impact on what individuals believe to be true as they mature from childhood into adulthood. Emily Martin, a prominent anthropologist at New York University in Manhattan, believes that the content in some of these textbooks is problematic as they perpetuate stereotypical gender roles that still exist in society today. Specifically, in her article The Egg and the Sperm: How Science Has Constructed a Romance Based on Stereotypical Male-Female Roles (1991), Martin discusses at length the portrayal of egg and sperm cells during the reproductive process by various textbooks.

Emily Grierson will be found guilty of murder because she premeditated her crime, was psychologically unstable, and attempted to conceal her crime.
