She chose not to associate herself with society and volumes of her poems, published posthumously, examine this idea as well as the themes of nature and death....
Her poems were rarely published in Russia because most of them had religious content (to express religious feelings was restricted in Russia for almost a century).
All her poems contain stanzas focusing on loss or loneliness, but the most striking ones talk particularly about death, specifically her own death and her own afterlife.
Although one may not completely understand her as a legend, a writer, or as a part of literature books, she is considered one of America’s greatest poets.
The attempt will be made to show how Dickinson used humor and / or irony for the dual purposes of comic relief and to stress an idea or conclusion about her life and environment expressed by the poetess in the respective poem....

One poems that I came in contact with was called “ I hard a Fly Buzz when I died” and this was one of many where she spoke about death.
It talks about her way to heaven and that in the beginning she wasn’t ready to die but once it came it wasn’t that bad.

Some people may think Emily Dickinson was a morbid person, but indeed she was only writing about what was going on in her personal life, and what was going on in society at those times.
She expressed all this in a poem she writes called “Crumbling in not an instant’s Act”.
This poem’s tells how crumbling does not happen immediately, but in a gradual process occurring slowly over time.
In Emily Dickinson's poem 'Because I could not stop for Death,' she characterizes her overarching theme of Death differently than it is usually described through the poetic devices of irony, imagery, symbolism, and word choice.
Even though she looked inner and not to the war for the material in her poetry, the tense atmosphere of the war years may have contributed a lot to her writings.
