The longest poem covers below pages. but in subject and tone her writing reaches for the elegant because it charts the panorama of the human soul. a real innovator, Dickinson experimented freely with traditional rhythm and meter, and sometimes used dashes, off rhymes, and strange metaphors—techniques that strongly encouraged smooth poetry.
