Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Considered by many to be the spiritual mother of American poetry, Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) was one of the most prolific and innovative poets of her era. Well-known for her reclusive personal life in <st1:place w:st="on"> <st1:city w:st="on">Amherst</st1:city>, <st1:state w:st="on">Massachusetts</st1:state> </st1:place>, her distinctively short lines, and eccentric approach to punctuation and capitalization, she completed over seventeen hundred poems in her short life. Though fewer than a dozen of her poems were actually published during her lifetime, she is still one of the most widely read poets in the English language. Over one hundred of her best poems are collected here.

Synopsis:

The more than one hundred poems presented here are some of Emily Dickinson's finest works. These unique and gemlike lyrics are pure distillations of profound feeling and great intellect. They contain a world of imagination, observation, and precisely articulated spiritual and emotional experience. Unlike other editions of Dickinson's work, which contain the public-domain versions of poems published shortly after her death, the ones reprinted here are reconstructions based on Dickinson's original manuscripts.

Synopsis:

A selection of authentic versions of the best poems of Americas most popular poet–in a beautiful miniature edition.

Emily Dickinson is widely considered to be one of the greatest of American poets. The aphoristic style and wit of much of her verse, its irregular rhymes, directness of expression, and startling imagery, have had a profound effect on twentieth-century literature. Over a hundred of Dickinsons best poems are collected here. These unique and gemlike lyrics are pure distillations of profound feeling and great intellect. They contain a world of imagination, observation, and precisely articulated spiritual and emotional experience.
