The book also deals with the texts of the poems and letters, Dickinson's ideas, and her poetic methods. All of this is essential introductory material. The author then dives into the poems, analyzing them in sections that correspond to Dickinson's 5 major subject matter areas: (1) Nature; (2) Poetry, Art and Imagination; (3)Friendship, Love and Society; (4) Suffering and Growth; and (5) Death, Immortality and Religion. A generous number of poems is included in each section. Next the author gives one line summaries for 40 more poems.

lifetime, Dickinson published hardly any of her massive poetic output (fewer than ten of her nearly 1,800 poems) and was utterly unknown as a writer. After Dickinson’s death, her sister discovered her notebooks and published the contents, thus, presenting America with a tremendous poetic legacy that appeared fully formed and without any warning. As a result, Dickinson has tended to occupy a rather uneasy place in the canon of American poetry; writers and critics have not always known what to make of her.

When it became clear she would not ever be published widely, she bound her poems into her own collections. Although they faced rejection at first, a first volume of Dickinson’s poems was published in 1890, and although some critics responded unfavorably to her subversion of the period’s strict conventions of rhyme and meter, the collection proved quite successful and created a great stir, leading to a second volume being published the next year, her letters in 1894, and a third. volume of poetry in 1896.

The 5 stars are for Dickinson herself, although I am the editor of this selection which was originally published by Everyman's Poetry. It is widely used in schools and when I last visited the Dickinson Homestead in Amherst MA it was the selection chosen to be featured in their small bookshop of Dickinsoniana. My purpose in editing this selection was to offer a general selection that emphasized the passionate the complex Dickinson without neglecting the poems written in her occasional child persona. To my knowledge it is the only selection that includes a complete "fascicle," (the hand-bound notebooks in which Dickinson self-published groups of poems) so that the reader can decide whether the fascicles are consciously developed lyric sequences or simpler anthologies. In editing the works I used Thomas H. Johnson's the Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson (1955), Carl Franklin's facsimiles in The Manuscript Books of Emily Dickinson (1981) and original manuscripts consulted at Harvard's Houghton Library and elsewhere.
I bought this copy on Amazon because I have run out of copies to give to friends! Having received a fixed payment for my edition, I do not profit from continued sales. The Everyman paperback showed a path through greenery on the cover rather than the highly feminine ladies' dresses of the Phoenix edition.

I have never been "into" poetry but purchased this collection for a Lifelong Learning course I'm taking at Lipscomb U. in Nashville. I signed up for the course, The Recluse (Dickenson) and the Rock Star (Frost), because of the wonderful retired professor who is teaching it. I found I had a real connection with Dickenson because of her love of nature and really loved this collection of her poetry.

This is not about the selection itself but the product. It is printed on yellow-ish thin and porous paper (like Starbucks napkin). The font size is very small. But it is thin/light weight thus handbag friendly.

Great book as it combines her most famous poems and some of her correspondence. Also great essay by one of the only writers who met her. Gave me new insight.
  • Butius
A kind of 'greatest hits' of Emily Dickinson's poems. Only fifty-four pages, but the best-known poems are here, nearly a hundred of them. At this price, a great place to start.

These are classic poems, although I'm just not a huge fan or her writing style. But I do respect the writer.

This is the perfectly sized volume to tuck into your bag for those random free moments during your day when you'd like to refresh your psyche with a tad of Dickinson. Sure, there are far better complete volumes out there of her work, and I highly recommend them. However, without over-analyzing the issue, I find this book to be a comfort while waiting on line at the bank, in the dentist's office, at the car dealership, etc.

And, despite the fact that it might label me as hopelessly shallow -- the cover is pretty as well.
What a marvelous book. I will keep reading it over and over.
