Numbered poem = Emily Dickinson
I wouldn't say Dickinson's poems are particularly known for being numbered...especially since she didn't number them herself. They're known by their first lines, and that's how J! refers to them.
That's how J! refers to them = the reason it's a Pavlov!
Yes, their first lines can be Pavlovian. Not numbers.

"Her poem No." followed by a numeral appears 5 times in clues in the J-Archive, always referring to Emily Dickinson. It's a Pavlov.

And there was just a clue for the college test this week that quoted a poem of hers I'd never heard of, but I got it because they cited a number.

E.E. Cummings actually numbered his poems himself.

Thanks, both, and my apologies to mas3cf. Obviously I haven't had a look at the college test yet... :oops:
I would point out, though, that 5 is a pretty low number of the hits for Emily Dickinson in the archive. This isn't the only thing to know about her. For instance, there are dozens of hits that include her hometown.

I haven’t checked, but I would guess there’s more that might say her many poems, over one thousand poems, or other wording to indicate a huge volume of work.

That and timeframe always gives me her name.

Yes, there are some that refer to her volume. "Timeframe" is even more key, I'd think. Is there another 19th C. American female poet that J! cites?
