Abstract Through the study of Emily Dickinson's life and her works as well as the comments on her, the thesis is intended to find out that how Eco-feminism influences her works and life deeply, and the perspective of Ecofeminism in her poetry.
As one of the most prominent poetesses in the nineteenth century, Emily Dickinson made a great impact on American literature, and she was praised as "the most topping poetess in the west since Sapphic".
She was outstanding among the contemporary poets for her unique writing style, creating images and profound ideology.
This leads them to face and overcome obstacles and to make choices, and thus accordingly gain personal insight and self discovery.
Due to the notion of belonging being such an intrinsic human need, texts including Emily Dickinson’s poems “I have been hungry all the years”, “This is my letter to the world”, and “A word dropped careless on a page” highlight the struggle in searching for such a connection, depicting the persona to eventually come to a point where she must make the decision to make sacrifices to her identity, or to seek a different avenue for satisfaction.
As Ynestra King, one of the Conference organizers wrote: "Eco-feminism is about connectedness and wholeness of theory and practice.
It asserts the special strength and integrity of every living thing.
