For example, she arranged and broke lines of verse in highly unusual ways to underscore meaning and she created extravagantly shaped letters of the alphabet to emphasize or play with a poem’s sense. She also incorporated cutouts from novels, magazines, and even the Bible to augment her own use of language. Although few of Dickinson’s poems were formally published during her lifetime, she herself “published” by sending out at least on-third of her poems in more than 1000 letters she wrote to at least 100 different correspondents. The recipients included writer Helen Hunt Jackson, who later published Dickinson’s “Success is counted sweetest” in the volume A Masque of Poets (1878), and Elizabeth Holland ... whose husband was an editor at Charles Scribner’s Sons, a prominent publishing company.

The letters are extraordinary; literary critics have compared them to the works of the great 19th Century Russian masters of "confessional" writing. But even as he was writing so expressively Van Gogh apparently felt that words were ... an ear, he worked himself willfully, his painting interrupted only temporarily. As the anger of each attack passed, he became as bright as ever, painting landscapes, portraits, self-portraits and writing scores of clear, logical letters.
