Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Known as "The Myth of Amherst" for her withdrawal from society while still a young woman, Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) had an inner life that was deeply emotional and intense. She knew rapture and despair, pondered the wonder of God and the meaning of death. She broke tradition and was criticized for her seminal experiments with unorthodox phrasing, rhyme and broken meter, within concise verse forms, thus becoming an innovator and forerunner of modern poets.

This collection of Emily Dickinson's poems is interspersed with her luminous and fascinating letters, all read by Julie Harris, who received a Tony® Award for her portrayal of Emily Dickinson in "The Belle of Amherst."
