Like most slaves of this era, the exact time and place of the birth of Elizabeth Freeman is undocumented but Bett’s is estimated to be around 1742. Slaves were treated as cattle not humans, birthdays were only important to their family and themselves. To the slave owners the only paper work that mattered were the ones that lead to the purchase and selling of slaves that they could profit out of in some way. However, what is documented is
About three months later on December 2, 1866 they were married at Croydon,Utah by Bishop James Walker. A dinner party was given in their honor by Charles and Harriet Shill. This was a happy event on their wedding day. Robert and his wife Miriam continued living with Edward on the farm. It was about this time in early winter that Edward wanted to build a new log house.

In 1838 Susanna Moodie, an author, abolitionist, traveller, who herself had immigrated from England in 1832 took a little trip from her residence in Douro Township, the township just west of Dummer to The English Line. As with all the settler’s in the region she had suffered through the financial depression of 1836 her husband having made some bad investments. For a while they were relegated to ‘the bush’. To help make ends meet she increased her writing and travelling. In her well known book Roughing It In The Bush (1852) she gives us some idea of The English Line near the Moore’s homestead at the time. First is her arriving:
Emily Dickinson’s Spiritual Beliefs vs Edward Taylor’s Devotion to God The Puritans’ devotion for grace during the peak of Puritan ideology strived people for the warmth and relief of God’s grace. Their true devotion and sacrifices to please God determined what kind of people they were. Edward Taylor in particular reflected his desires for grace through Puritan literature because the society of the colonial age believed that God decided their true fate. Through this belief, Taylor chanted and wrote his poetry for God to maintain a direct influence on his daily life.
Emily Dickinson is regarded by many as an elitist. Someone who believes that the separation of social classes and hierarchies is not only required, but beneficial as long as they are in the pinnacle. Her poems paint a picture of her character that make her seem like an overconfident individual that loved to pride herself on her own intellectual prowess. I believe that the personality she portrayed in her poems is deleterious and harmful. It is not like she did it on purpose, her poems were only published after her death.
The poem “Taking off Emily Dickinson’s Clothes” By Billy Collins, amplifies the conflict of Emily Dickinson’s inner feelings being revealed as a result of her poetry being published (Emily Dickinson wanted to keep her poetry private). The speaker is aware of this and he shows a lot respect for Dickinson and her poetry throughout the poem. Respect is shown by the speaker by constantly referring to Dickinson’s poems. The speaker references Dickinson’s work in a way that is easily noticed. The speaker preserves Dickinson’s more complex thoughts and feelings.
The analogies create imagery to help the readers understand the association and her feelings towards the outside world. Frogs are loud, slimy, and obnoxious, and they represent people croaking about themselves, trying to be relevant. A bog is an unsanitary, smelly, foul place, and so by using it to represent society, it is made clear that Dickinson thought of the outside world as a repulsive, corrupted place that she had no intention of being a part of. Hence, as a bog welcomes a frog, society welcomes the self-involved.
Emily Dickinson, regarded as one of America’s greatest poets, is also well known for her unusual life of self imposed social seclusion. Living a life of simplicity and seclusion, she yet wrote poetry of great power; questioning the nature of immortality and death. Her different lifestyle created an aura; often romanticized, and frequently a source of interest and speculation. But ultimately Emily Dickinson is remembered for her unique poetry. Within short, compact phrases she expressed far-reaching ideas; amidst paradox and uncertainty her poetry has an undeniable capacity to move and provoke.
