Dickinson for all!!

by Noboyuki3 on Sep 24, 2010

I used to have a selected compilation of Miss Dickinsonīs poems; This one I ordered for my daughter for she was really intrigued by this poetry! I think she read page by page, poem by poem day by day and it was almost like a submersion in this beautiful hermetic language of this young, isolated and sensitive woman, to overcome her own adolescent hindrances...and imaginary roles. Irrationality has a voice here!


Comprehensive Compendium

by V10let on Mar 4, 2010

Used this book for a literary group's series of lectures. It is laid out in roughly chronological order and is what it says on the cover. If you want to do more than dip into Emily Dickinson, use this book.


My Favorite Poet

by Rosie1954 on Jul 2, 2007

Years ago I glanced through A school (Literature) textbook, and read the words, "Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul And sings the tune Without the words And never stops at all....." And that was all I needed to fall in love with Dickinson's poetry. I cannot be objective, only partial, I do appreciate and enjoy her work. It is timeless. It is direct, and often beautifully so. She is considered one of America's greatest poets and rightly so. I also appreciate and enjoy Robert Frost and Carl Sandburg, Poe (The Raven), Robert Louis Stevenson (A Child's Garden of Verses) and Walt Whitman (Leaves of Grass). I like variety. ALL great and remarkable poets.
