    Because she is so freaking good-- As good--as she can be-- She makes me want--to scream--and shout-- And set my poor heart free-- Because I cannot live without-- Her rhythm--and her rhyme-- I keep this poet close at hand And only ask--for time. ...

    When I hoped, I feared Since I hoped, I dared! I realized for a moment with a great sense of sadness that from now on, whenever I decide to read a famous poet for the first time, I must keep myself free from any prejudice and presumption. I had heard that she was regarded as a tra...

    Book Review I love Emily Dickinson's poetry. I recently went to a museum exhibit dedicated to her and fell in love again with one of her poems, which I'll dissect below: Critics of Emily Dickinson?s poem number 328, commonly titled ?A Bird Came Down the Walk,? have seve...

    This is a huge volume of poetry and probably not meant to be read straight through, but that's what I did. Some of them I didn't like or understand, but there were many that I thought were beautiful and perfectly suited to my feelings. I think that's the way with most poets and their r...

    Emily Dickinson's poems convinced me, at an early age of 9 or 10, to become a writer myself. I discovered her poems from the obsolete American textbooks my mother got from the collection in our school library. On Saturday and Sunday afternoons, when it was too hot to play outside and c...

    Sigh... I just experienced poetic gut punches from Emily herself. From this collection alone, there's a total of 1,775 poems. Blimey! A huge compilation if you ask me! Honestly, I didn't read every poem, because that would probably result in me having a mushy brain (poor noodle!). I ju...

    4 stars After reading through most of these poems, Emily remains one of my top favorite poets. However, I also came across many poems that I felt no connection with and frankly made no sense to me. So with that in mind, I unfortunately couldn't give this 5 stars. Still a great exper...

    I love Dickinson. More specifically, I love the sense of balance I feel when reading any of her poems. Her poetry has light within its overwhelming darkness; it is straightforward yet subtle. Its originality is sometimes even startling. I have learned so much in reading her work but th...

    See the Dickinson documentary A Loaded Gun for my take on this writer, arguably the best poet in English. (I play the villain in that film directed by James Wolpaw.) I have given reading-whistlings of ED's bird poems*, from memory of course, in the garden of the Dickinson Manse in Amh...

    Running upwards of 1,700 poems, there's no conceivable way I could read them all. I settled for maybe half. That's not to say I'm not tempted to read them all, but Dickinson is one of those fine poets who begin to run a little stale after the first 200 or so poems. Best to step off and...

    This book boasts a fabulous collection of work's by Emily Dickinson. Admittedly, I didn't enjoy all of them, hence the four stars given, but the majority of the poem's were beautifully written, as well as being rather thought provoking. "He fumbles at your spirit As players at the...

    I would highly, highly recommend strolling through Dickinson's collected verse. She's a (surprisingly) highly underrated poet. Going deep into her entire collection will unearth unknown gems as well as old favorites. This edition, organized chronologically, allows the opportunity to st...

    A brilliant and one-of-a-kind poet! ...

    Emily, ogni tua poesia un sogno! La tua mente cos superiore che non posso permettermi di scrivere nulla su di te. Le tue poesie sono magiche, le ho adorate tutte! CONSIGLIATO. ...

    What can I say? Emily Dickinson's poetry is the most stunning, haunting poetry I've ever read. I'd read just a few of her poems before decidin to tackle her complete works. It's an incredible experience to read poem after poem that almost makes you feel like she understood the emotions...

    bees?? ...

    Update: I am at last finished (after a year of not really steady reading). Now I just have to start memorizing. . . The result of reading the full Emily is only greater curiosity. Now I want to see the poems as she arranged them, in their packets. The chron. arrangement pokes at a bi...

    This splendid book collects Miss Dickinson?s fruitful progeny. Before her time, she mastered the short form and slant rhyme that epitomize the modern poem. Yes, she spends far too much time lamenting death and contemplating bees, but her mostly private thoughts leave a mark on the Am...

    "MUCH madness is divinest sense To a discerning eye; Much sense the starkest madness. 'T is the majority In this, as all, prevails. Assent, and you are sane; Demur, - you're straightway dangerous, And handled with a chain." A perfect collection for a perfect poet. Poems smal...

    "Hope" is the thing with feathers? That perches in the soul? And sings the tune without the words? And never stops?at all? And sweetest?in the Gale?is heard? And sore must be the storm? That could abash the little Bird That kept so many warm? I've heard ...

    Disappointing overall. She certainly had a particular voice and style, and I can see why it would appeal to some. I found her poems to be very repetitive and didn?t find much that stood out to me. There was one exception: Tell all the truth but tell it slant ? Success in Circui...

    At her best, ED combines a tight form with words that should trouble us, about the limits of knowing and about the terror of death, which are sometimes one and the same. Along with Whitman, the first great (because the first realistic) American poet. ...

    What can I say? Emily Dickinson's poetry is the most stunning, haunting poetry I've ever read. I'd read just a few of her poems before decidin to tackle her complete works. It's an incredible experience to read poem after poem that almost makes you feel like she understood the emotions...

    This splendid book collects Miss Dickinson?s fruitful progeny. Before her time, she mastered the short form and slant rhyme that epitomize the modern poem. Yes, she spends far too much time lamenting death and contemplating bees, but her mostly private thoughts leave a mark on the Am...

    There is so much to say about this book. I decided to read the works of Emily Dickinson after I saw her name everywhere for a couple of week. I saw quotes from her in a book, a book about her, her name mentioned in another, and so on. So I found this book and decided to read her works ...

    Overall I as a little disappointed with this collection of poems. It's not that she isn't a good writer, but I think I would have preferred a selection of her poems to a complete collection. I remember I liked her in high school too, so I was kind of bummed out reading (or maybe reread...

    Quando penso a Emily, raramente penso a uno scrittore, a un poeta, a un artista. Il pi delle volte mi affido a lei come se fosse una persona, una persona cara, una bambina da consolare. Nella mia testa Emily una bambina che ha bisogno di un abbraccio e che allo stesso tempo sa ab...

    Two fathers stand astride every word in this telephone-book-sized collection. One is Emily?s literal father; and under his watchful eye one feels every shard of feeling and every metaphysical observation being crafted into phrases, fortune cookie fortunes, ditties fit for repetition ...

    Emily Dickinson crea poemas de su propio mundo. No puedo decir que todos am todos sus poemas, porque Dickinson los forma con elementos de nuestro mundo y los transforma para que se adapten al mundo en el que ella vive. Es algo que no puede ser descrito. Disfruta cada uno de ellos....

    Emily is my favorite 19th century American poet. When I first discovered her I connected not only with her words (which I didn't always get) but also the intelligent, cloistered woman whose mind could not be contained within the simple life she led...so much like myself. ...

    Emily Dickinson left a large cache of poetry -- 900 poems hand-sewn together in 60 small packets -- which her sister Lavinia discovered after Emily's death. The poems were untitled and mostly undated. Lavinia realized she had unearthed a literary treasure trove, and sought help in gett...

    I will always love Dickinson's poems - one after another they reveal us the beauty of an inward world scattered sometimes with thought provocative images and other times with sweet and warm feelings, and imbedded all times into a profound sensitivity which marked poet's gracious living...

    Emily Dickinson?s poetry is sheer beauty. My initial exposure to poetry was actually through one of her poems many years ago. She always seems so vulnerable in her poetry. It inspired me to (secretly) start writing poems of my own. Her poetry is tragic yet hopeful; there?s a se...

    I'm tempted to only quote Dickinson in a review of this luminary of solitude, this pristine custodian of her own periodic deaths, and this mystically crowned priestess of Nature's God. When my inspiration flags, a Dickinson poem restores zest and also humility. If I had to pick a favor...

    Emily is my favorite 19th century American poet. When I first discovered her I connected not only with her words (which I didn't always get) but also the intelligent, cloistered woman whose mind could not be contained within the simple life she led...so much like myself. ...

    Emily Dickinson left a large cache of poetry -- 900 poems hand-sewn together in 60 small packets -- which her sister Lavinia discovered after Emily's death. The poems were untitled and mostly undated. Lavinia realized she had unearthed a literary treasure trove, and sought help in gett...

    I will always love Dickinson's poems - one after another they reveal us the beauty of an inward world scattered sometimes with thought provocative images and other times with sweet and warm feelings, and imbedded all times into a profound sensitivity which marked poet's gracious living...

    Emily Dickinson?s poetry is sheer beauty. My initial exposure to poetry was actually through one of her poems many years ago. She always seems so vulnerable in her poetry. It inspired me to (secretly) start writing poems of my own. Her poetry is tragic yet hopeful; there?s a se...

    I'm tempted to only quote Dickinson in a review of this luminary of solitude, this pristine custodian of her own periodic deaths, and this mystically crowned priestess of Nature's God. When my inspiration flags, a Dickinson poem restores zest and also humility. If I had to pick a favor...

    I had a guinea golden; I lost it in the sand, And though the sum was simple, And pounds were in the land, Still had it such a value Unto my frugal eye, That when I could not find it I sat me down to sigh. I had a crimson robin Who sang full many a day, But when t...

    There are other editions of Dickinson's poems, but it is hard to trust their hyphenation at the least. In other cases, the poems have been more severely edited, and in my experience, that is almost always a watering down of theme and an inability to appreciate Dickinson's artistry. ...

    4 stars After reading through most of these poems, Emily remains one of my top favorite poets. However, I also came across many poems that I felt no connection with and frankly made no sense to me. So with that in mind, I unfortunately couldn't give this 5 stars. Still a great exper...

    I love Dickinson. More specifically, I love the sense of balance I feel when reading any of her poems. Her poetry has light within its overwhelming darkness; it is straightforward yet subtle. Its originality is sometimes even startling. I have learned so much in reading her work but th...

    Running upwards of 1,700 poems, there's no conceivable way I could read them all. I settled for maybe half. That's not to say I'm not tempted to read them all, but Dickinson is one of those fine poets who begin to run a little stale after the first 200 or so poems. Best to step off and...

    What can I say? Emily Dickinson's poetry is the most stunning, haunting poetry I've ever read. I'd read just a few of her poems before decidin to tackle her complete works. It's an incredible experience to read poem after poem that almost makes you feel like she understood the emotions...

    Update: I am at last finished (after a year of not really steady reading). Now I just have to start memorizing. . . The result of reading the full Emily is only greater curiosity. Now I want to see the poems as she arranged them, in their packets. The chron. arrangement pokes at a bi...

    This splendid book collects Miss Dickinson?s fruitful progeny. Before her time, she mastered the short form and slant rhyme that epitomize the modern poem. Yes, she spends far too much time lamenting death and contemplating bees, but her mostly private thoughts leave a mark on the Am...

    Disappointing overall. She certainly had a particular voice and style, and I can see why it would appeal to some. I found her poems to be very repetitive and didn?t find much that stood out to me. There was one exception: Tell all the truth but tell it slant ? Success in Circui...

    At her best, ED combines a tight form with words that should trouble us, about the limits of knowing and about the terror of death, which are sometimes one and the same. Along with Whitman, the first great (because the first realistic) American poet. ...

    There is so much to say about this book. I decided to read the works of Emily Dickinson after I saw her name everywhere for a couple of week. I saw quotes from her in a book, a book about her, her name mentioned in another, and so on. So I found this book and decided to read her works ...

    i've been reading these for years. there have always been a few that took me by surprise, but lately i find this whole collection to be a really astonishing experiment in language - it's taken me years to see how modern she is (for you dickinson fans, i'm sure you're saying, well, DUH!...

    Overall I as a little disappointed with this collection of poems. It's not that she isn't a good writer, but I think I would have preferred a selection of her poems to a complete collection. I remember I liked her in high school too, so I was kind of bummed out reading (or maybe reread...

    Quando penso a Emily, raramente penso a uno scrittore, a un poeta, a un artista. Il pi delle volte mi affido a lei come se fosse una persona, una persona cara, una bambina da consolare. Nella mia testa Emily una bambina che ha bisogno di un abbraccio e che allo stesso tempo sa ab...

    Running upwards of 1,700 poems, there's no conceivable way I could read them all. I settled for maybe half. That's not to say I'm not tempted to read them all, but Dickinson is one of those fine poets who begin to run a little stale after the first 200 or so poems. Best to step off and...

    This splendid book collects Miss Dickinson?s fruitful progeny. Before her time, she mastered the short form and slant rhyme that epitomize the modern poem. Yes, she spends far too much time lamenting death and contemplating bees, but her mostly private thoughts leave a mark on the Am...

    Disappointing overall. She certainly had a particular voice and style, and I can see why it would appeal to some. I found her poems to be very repetitive and didn?t find much that stood out to me. There was one exception: Tell all the truth but tell it slant ? Success in Circui...

    There is so much to say about this book. I decided to read the works of Emily Dickinson after I saw her name everywhere for a couple of week. I saw quotes from her in a book, a book about her, her name mentioned in another, and so on. So I found this book and decided to read her works ...

    i've been reading these for years. there have always been a few that took me by surprise, but lately i find this whole collection to be a really astonishing experiment in language - it's taken me years to see how modern she is (for you dickinson fans, i'm sure you're saying, well, DUH!...

    Overall I as a little disappointed with this collection of poems. It's not that she isn't a good writer, but I think I would have preferred a selection of her poems to a complete collection. I remember I liked her in high school too, so I was kind of bummed out reading (or maybe reread...

    Quando penso a Emily, raramente penso a uno scrittore, a un poeta, a un artista. Il pi delle volte mi affido a lei come se fosse una persona, una persona cara, una bambina da consolare. Nella mia testa Emily una bambina che ha bisogno di un abbraccio e che allo stesso tempo sa ab...

    Two fathers stand astride every word in this telephone-book-sized collection. One is Emily?s literal father; and under his watchful eye one feels every shard of feeling and every metaphysical observation being crafted into phrases, fortune cookie fortunes, ditties fit for repetition ...

    Emily Dickinson crea poemas de su propio mundo. No puedo decir que todos am todos sus poemas, porque Dickinson los forma con elementos de nuestro mundo y los transforma para que se adapten al mundo en el que ella vive. Es algo que no puede ser descrito. Disfruta cada uno de ellos....

    Emily is my favorite 19th century American poet. When I first discovered her I connected not only with her words (which I didn't always get) but also the intelligent, cloistered woman whose mind could not be contained within the simple life she led...so much like myself. ...

    Emily Dickinson left a large cache of poetry -- 900 poems hand-sewn together in 60 small packets -- which her sister Lavinia discovered after Emily's death. The poems were untitled and mostly undated. Lavinia realized she had unearthed a literary treasure trove, and sought help in gett...

    I will always love Dickinson's poems - one after another they reveal us the beauty of an inward world scattered sometimes with thought provocative images and other times with sweet and warm feelings, and imbedded all times into a profound sensitivity which marked poet's gracious living...

    Emily Dickinson?s poetry is sheer beauty. My initial exposure to poetry was actually through one of her poems many years ago. She always seems so vulnerable in her poetry. It inspired me to (secretly) start writing poems of my own. Her poetry is tragic yet hopeful; there?s a se...

    I'm tempted to only quote Dickinson in a review of this luminary of solitude, this pristine custodian of her own periodic deaths, and this mystically crowned priestess of Nature's God. When my inspiration flags, a Dickinson poem restores zest and also humility. If I had to pick a favor...

    I had a guinea golden; I lost it in the sand, And though the sum was simple, And pounds were in the land, Still had it such a value Unto my frugal eye, That when I could not find it I sat me down to sigh. I had a crimson robin Who sang full many a day, But when t...

    Disappointing overall. She certainly had a particular voice and style, and I can see why it would appeal to some. I found her poems to be very repetitive and didn?t find much that stood out to me. There was one exception: Tell all the truth but tell it slant ? Success in Circui...

    There is so much to say about this book. I decided to read the works of Emily Dickinson after I saw her name everywhere for a couple of week. I saw quotes from her in a book, a book about her, her name mentioned in another, and so on. So I found this book and decided to read her works ...

    i've been reading these for years. there have always been a few that took me by surprise, but lately i find this whole collection to be a really astonishing experiment in language - it's taken me years to see how modern she is (for you dickinson fans, i'm sure you're saying, well, DUH!...

    Overall I as a little disappointed with this collection of poems. It's not that she isn't a good writer, but I think I would have preferred a selection of her poems to a complete collection. I remember I liked her in high school too, so I was kind of bummed out reading (or maybe reread...

    Quando penso a Emily, raramente penso a uno scrittore, a un poeta, a un artista. Il pi delle volte mi affido a lei come se fosse una persona, una persona cara, una bambina da consolare. Nella mia testa Emily una bambina che ha bisogno di un abbraccio e che allo stesso tempo sa ab...

    Emily Dickinson crea poemas de su propio mundo. No puedo decir que todos am todos sus poemas, porque Dickinson los forma con elementos de nuestro mundo y los transforma para que se adapten al mundo en el que ella vive. Es algo que no puede ser descrito. Disfruta cada uno de ellos....

    Two fathers stand astride every word in this telephone-book-sized collection. One is Emily?s literal father; and under his watchful eye one feels every shard of feeling and every metaphysical observation being crafted into phrases, fortune cookie fortunes, ditties fit for repetition ...

    Emily Dickinson crea poemas de su propio mundo. No puedo decir que todos am todos sus poemas, porque Dickinson los forma con elementos de nuestro mundo y los transforma para que se adapten al mundo en el que ella vive. Es algo que no puede ser descrito. Disfruta cada uno de ellos....

    Emily is my favorite 19th century American poet. When I first discovered her I connected not only with her words (which I didn't always get) but also the intelligent, cloistered woman whose mind could not be contained within the simple life she led...so much like myself. ...

    Emily Dickinson left a large cache of poetry -- 900 poems hand-sewn together in 60 small packets -- which her sister Lavinia discovered after Emily's death. The poems were untitled and mostly undated. Lavinia realized she had unearthed a literary treasure trove, and sought help in gett...

    Running upwards of 1,700 poems, there's no conceivable way I could read them all. I settled for maybe half. That's not to say I'm not tempted to read them all, but Dickinson is one of those fine poets who begin to run a little stale after the first 200 or so poems. Best to step off and...

    This book boasts a fabulous collection of work's by Emily Dickinson. Admittedly, I didn't enjoy all of them, hence the four stars given, but the majority of the poem's were beautifully written, as well as being rather thought provoking. "He fumbles at your spirit As players at the...

    I would highly, highly recommend strolling through Dickinson's collected verse. She's a (surprisingly) highly underrated poet. Going deep into her entire collection will unearth unknown gems as well as old favorites. This edition, organized chronologically, allows the opportunity to st...

    What can I say? Emily Dickinson's poetry is the most stunning, haunting poetry I've ever read. I'd read just a few of her poems before decidin to tackle her complete works. It's an incredible experience to read poem after poem that almost makes you feel like she understood the emotions...

    bees?? ...

    Update: I am at last finished (after a year of not really steady reading). Now I just have to start memorizing. . . The result of reading the full Emily is only greater curiosity. Now I want to see the poems as she arranged them, in their packets. The chron. arrangement pokes at a bi...

    This splendid book collects Miss Dickinson?s fruitful progeny. Before her time, she mastered the short form and slant rhyme that epitomize the modern poem. Yes, she spends far too much time lamenting death and contemplating bees, but her mostly private thoughts leave a mark on the Am...

    "MUCH madness is divinest sense To a discerning eye; Much sense the starkest madness. 'T is the majority In this, as all, prevails. Assent, and you are sane; Demur, - you're straightway dangerous, And handled with a chain." A perfect collection for a perfect poet. Poems smal...

    Disappointing overall. She certainly had a particular voice and style, and I can see why it would appeal to some. I found her poems to be very repetitive and didn?t find much that stood out to me. There was one exception: Tell all the truth but tell it slant ? Success in Circui...

    At her best, ED combines a tight form with words that should trouble us, about the limits of knowing and about the terror of death, which are sometimes one and the same. Along with Whitman, the first great (because the first realistic) American poet. ...

    There is so much to say about this book. I decided to read the works of Emily Dickinson after I saw her name everywhere for a couple of week. I saw quotes from her in a book, a book about her, her name mentioned in another, and so on. So I found this book and decided to read her works ...

    i've been reading these for years. there have always been a few that took me by surprise, but lately i find this whole collection to be a really astonishing experiment in language - it's taken me years to see how modern she is (for you dickinson fans, i'm sure you're saying, well, DUH!...

    Overall I as a little disappointed with this collection of poems. It's not that she isn't a good writer, but I think I would have preferred a selection of her poems to a complete collection. I remember I liked her in high school too, so I was kind of bummed out reading (or maybe reread...

    Quando penso a Emily, raramente penso a uno scrittore, a un poeta, a un artista. Il pi delle volte mi affido a lei come se fosse una persona, una persona cara, una bambina da consolare. Nella mia testa Emily una bambina che ha bisogno di un abbraccio e che allo stesso tempo sa ab...

    Two fathers stand astride every word in this telephone-book-sized collection. One is Emily?s literal father; and under his watchful eye one feels every shard of feeling and every metaphysical observation being crafted into phrases, fortune cookie fortunes, ditties fit for repetition ...

    Emily Dickinson crea poemas de su propio mundo. No puedo decir que todos am todos sus poemas, porque Dickinson los forma con elementos de nuestro mundo y los transforma para que se adapten al mundo en el que ella vive. Es algo que no puede ser descrito. Disfruta cada uno de ellos....

    Emily is my favorite 19th century American poet. When I first discovered her I connected not only with her words (which I didn't always get) but also the intelligent, cloistered woman whose mind could not be contained within the simple life she led...so much like myself. ...

    Emily Dickinson left a large cache of poetry -- 900 poems hand-sewn together in 60 small packets -- which her sister Lavinia discovered after Emily's death. The poems were untitled and mostly undated. Lavinia realized she had unearthed a literary treasure trove, and sought help in gett...

    I will always love Dickinson's poems - one after another they reveal us the beauty of an inward world scattered sometimes with thought provocative images and other times with sweet and warm feelings, and imbedded all times into a profound sensitivity which marked poet's gracious living...

    Emily Dickinson?s poetry is sheer beauty. My initial exposure to poetry was actually through one of her poems many years ago. She always seems so vulnerable in her poetry. It inspired me to (secretly) start writing poems of my own. Her poetry is tragic yet hopeful; there?s a se...

    I'm tempted to only quote Dickinson in a review of this luminary of solitude, this pristine custodian of her own periodic deaths, and this mystically crowned priestess of Nature's God. When my inspiration flags, a Dickinson poem restores zest and also humility. If I had to pick a favor...

    I had a guinea golden; I lost it in the sand, And though the sum was simple, And pounds were in the land, Still had it such a value Unto my frugal eye, That when I could not find it I sat me down to sigh. I had a crimson robin Who sang full many a day, But when t...

    There are other editions of Dickinson's poems, but it is hard to trust their hyphenation at the least. In other cases, the poems have been more severely edited, and in my experience, that is almost always a watering down of theme and an inability to appreciate Dickinson's artistry. ...

    She isn't my favorite poet, but there are a couple I really like. When I first read her poetry in 9th grade, I admired her usage of dashes even though I had no way of explaining why I enjoyed them. They're one of the most distinctive aspects of her poetry and the greatest innovation sh...

    Emily Dickinson crea poemas de su propio mundo. No puedo decir que todos am todos sus poemas, porque Dickinson los forma con elementos de nuestro mundo y los transforma para que se adapten al mundo en el que ella vive. Es algo que no puede ser descrito. Disfruta cada uno de ellos....

    Emily is my favorite 19th century American poet. When I first discovered her I connected not only with her words (which I didn't always get) but also the intelligent, cloistered woman whose mind could not be contained within the simple life she led...so much like myself. ...

    Emily Dickinson left a large cache of poetry -- 900 poems hand-sewn together in 60 small packets -- which her sister Lavinia discovered after Emily's death. The poems were untitled and mostly undated. Lavinia realized she had unearthed a literary treasure trove, and sought help in gett...

    I will always love Dickinson's poems - one after another they reveal us the beauty of an inward world scattered sometimes with thought provocative images and other times with sweet and warm feelings, and imbedded all times into a profound sensitivity which marked poet's gracious living...

    Emily Dickinson?s poetry is sheer beauty. My initial exposure to poetry was actually through one of her poems many years ago. She always seems so vulnerable in her poetry. It inspired me to (secretly) start writing poems of my own. Her poetry is tragic yet hopeful; there?s a se...

    Running upwards of 1,700 poems, there's no conceivable way I could read them all. I settled for maybe half. That's not to say I'm not tempted to read them all, but Dickinson is one of those fine poets who begin to run a little stale after the first 200 or so poems. Best to step off and...

    The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson Thomas H. Johnson, ed.--The Definitive Text, Accept No Substitute (c) Copyright 2012 Margaret Langstaff. All rights reserved. [from the forthcoming Reading Emily Dickinson by Margaret Langstaff] So often misunderstood and ill-served by her ed...

    What can I say? Emily Dickinson's poetry is the most stunning, haunting poetry I've ever read. I'd read just a few of her poems before decidin to tackle her complete works. It's an incredible experience to read poem after poem that almost makes you feel like she understood the emotions...

    bees?? ...

    Update: I am at last finished (after a year of not really steady reading). Now I just have to start memorizing. . . The result of reading the full Emily is only greater curiosity. Now I want to see the poems as she arranged them, in their packets. The chron. arrangement pokes at a bi...

    This splendid book collects Miss Dickinson?s fruitful progeny. Before her time, she mastered the short form and slant rhyme that epitomize the modern poem. Yes, she spends far too much time lamenting death and contemplating bees, but her mostly private thoughts leave a mark on the Am...

    Disappointing overall. She certainly had a particular voice and style, and I can see why it would appeal to some. I found her poems to be very repetitive and didn?t find much that stood out to me. There was one exception: Tell all the truth but tell it slant ? Success in Circui...

    At her best, ED combines a tight form with words that should trouble us, about the limits of knowing and about the terror of death, which are sometimes one and the same. Along with Whitman, the first great (because the first realistic) American poet. ...

    There is so much to say about this book. I decided to read the works of Emily Dickinson after I saw her name everywhere for a couple of week. I saw quotes from her in a book, a book about her, her name mentioned in another, and so on. So I found this book and decided to read her works ...

    i've been reading these for years. there have always been a few that took me by surprise, but lately i find this whole collection to be a really astonishing experiment in language - it's taken me years to see how modern she is (for you dickinson fans, i'm sure you're saying, well, DUH!...

    Overall I as a little disappointed with this collection of poems. It's not that she isn't a good writer, but I think I would have preferred a selection of her poems to a complete collection. I remember I liked her in high school too, so I was kind of bummed out reading (or maybe reread...
