My Letter to the World and Other Poems (Visions in Poetry) Cover

 

Staff Pick

I grew up in Emily Dickinson's hometown of Amherst, Massachusetts, and was lucky to be introduced to her poetry long before I tried to understand or analyze it. If you let the words roll around in your ears, you'll catch yourself tumbling on her rhymes and wondering where the sublime ever ends.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Visions in Poetry is an innovative and award-winning series of classic poems reinterpreted for today's readers by outstanding contemporary artists in distinctively beautiful editions. This is My Letter to the World and Other Poems by Emily Dickinson is brilliantly illustrated by Isabelle Arsenault. The artist's interpretation displays a rich understanding of Dickinson's poetry, which is known for its economy, unexpected imagery and hauntingly personal point of view. Arsenault has created a subtle meditation on Dickinson's life and its intersection with her verse. In the dream-like illustrations, the poet — sometimes serene, often sad and always enigmatic — is an omnipresent figure in her ghostly white dress. Dickinson's letters, the words she left to the world, have found their ideal visual complement.
