From 1867 on her practice of making fair copies became intermittent. During the last years of her life she left poems on the odd bits of paper on which she had first drafted them. From 1858 to 1862 Dickinson's productivity increased. The fair copies of 366 poems have been dated to 1862 based on an analysis of the manuscripts.
