This paper is mainly concerned with mystical experience in Emily Dickinson's later poems (composed between 1864 and 1886) to show the poet's spiritual growth and her attitude to the love of the Divine. It aims at analyzing and interpreting the poetry of Emily Dickinson from a mystical point of view. Most of Dickinson's poems trace themes like death, love and spiritual ecstasy. It proposes that Mysticism is some kind of spiritual practice of the soul that got weary of the material world; it is a religion of love of the Divine
