Emily Dickinson: Selected Poems

Emily Dickinson: Selected Poems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Much madness is divinest sense--
To a discerning Eye--
Much Sense--that starkest Madness
--From 'Tis the Majority

Emily Dickinson, the Belle of Amherst, stayed close to home, finding inspiration in the small world around her. Often writing more than a poem a day--although few were published during her lifetime--she perfected a highly personal, condensed, and enduring style. Among her most famous poems included here are: Success Is Counted Sweetest, I Taste a Liquor Never Brewed, and This Is My Letter to the World.

Synopsis:

After receiving a good education, Emily Dickinson (1830-86) returned home to Amherst, Massachusetts, where she spent the rest of her life writing more than a poem a day until her death. Her refusal to compromise her highly condensed expression meant that only a tiny fraction of her work was published in her lifetime.
