About Author

  1. Emily Dickinson was an American poet who, despite the fact that less than a dozen of her nearly eighteen hundred poems were published during her lifetime, is widely considered one of the most original and influential poets of the 19th century.Dickinson was born to a successful family with strong community ties, she lived a mostly introverted and reclusive life After she studied at the Amherst Academy for seven years in her youth, she spent a short time at Mount Holyoke Female Seminary before returning to her family s house in Amherst Thought of as an eccentric by the locals, she became known for her penchant for white clothing and her reluctance to greet guests or, later in life, even leave her room Most of her friendships were therefore carried out by correspondence.Although Dickinson was a prolific private poet, fewer than a dozen of her nearly eighteen hundred poems were published during her lifetime.The work that was published during her lifetime was usually altered significantly by the publishers to fit the conventional poetic rules of the time Dickinson s poems are unique for the era in which she wrote they contain short lines, typically lack titles, and often use slant rhyme as well as unconventional capitalization and punctuation.Many of her poems deal with themes of death and immortality, two recurring topics in letters to her friends.Although most of her acquaintances were probably aware of Dickinson s writing, it was not until after her death in 1886 when Lavinia, Emily s younger sister, discovered her cache of poems that the breadth of Dickinson s work became apparent Her first collection of poetry was published in 1890 by personal acquaintances Thomas Wentworth Higginson and Mabel Loomis Todd, both of whom heavily edited the content A complete and mostly unaltered collection of her poetry became available for the first time in 1955 when The Poems of Emily Dickinson was published by scholar Thomas H Johnson Despite unfavorable reviews and skepticism of her literary prowess during the late 19th and early 20th century, critics now consider Dickinson to be a major American poet.For information, please see answers topic emily di

One thought on “The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson

  1. 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 handAnd only ask for time.

  2. I felt a sneeze as big as GodForm in back of my NoseYet being without a HandkerchiefI Panicked quite and frozeSneeze I must yet sneeze must notDilemma made me grieveHappy then a single BeeSaw me use my sleeveWell all right, I did not read every one of the 25,678 but certainly a fair number You know when she died they found she d stuffed poems everywhere in her house, up the chimney, down her knickers, tied in little packets onto her dogs hindquarters, someone cut a slice of a loaf of bread to ma [...]

  3. When I hoped, I fearedSince 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 transcendentalist as far as the major themes in her poems were concerned I do not know from where I got this notion, I probably learned it from some of the early articles, I read about her poems somewhere How authentic was th [...]

  4. 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 several different interpretations of the poem Most critics believe that the poem is a conventional symbolic account of Christian encounter within the world of nature Budick 218 Although several critics take a religious approach to the poe [...]

  5. 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 readers After reading, I was left in wonder about this strange and reclusive woman who saw only a handful of her poems published before her death She never knew she would be a success, never knew her poems would be lo [...]

  6. A rose for Emily With gratitude and affection She left us her poems, it was her way to share her loneliness with us

  7. They shut me up in Prose As when a little GirlThey put me in the Closet Because they liked me still Still Could themself have peeped And seen my Brain go round They might as wise have lodged a BirdFor Treason in the Pound Himself has but to willAnd easy as a StarAbolish his Captivity And laugh No have I I recently ran across an argument against eBooks that went along the lines of suspicions of censorship, commenting on how easy it would be for publishers and the like to change the text at any p [...]

  8. 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 children were forced to take afternoon siestas, I d end up reading her poems and imagined the person, that woman, with whom I shared similar thoughts My favorite poem remains to this day I m nobody Who are you Are you [...]

  9. I taste a liquor never brewed by Emily DickinsonI taste a liquor never brewed From Tankards scooped in Pearl Not all the Vats upon the RhineYield such an Alcohol Inebriate of air am I And Debauchee of Dew Reeling thro endless summer days From inns of molten Blue When Landlords turn the drunken BeeOut of the Foxglove s door When Butterflies renounce their drams I shall but drink the Till Seraphs swing their snowy Hats And Saints to windows run To see the little TipplerLeaning against the Sun Ine [...]

  10. the complete poem by Emily Dickinsonwith the help of the prowling Bee, by Susan Kornfeld I was able to go behind the scenes in Emily Dickinson worksafter 3 months of reading plan i would say Emily Dickinson is pure and one of a kind no doubt

  11. Emily Dickinson articulates my own thoughts and feelings in a way I never could She manifests my ideal She validates my existence If you like Emily, I like you.I hide myself within my flower,That wearing on your breast, You, unsuspecting, wear me too And angels know the rest I hide myself within my flower,That, fading from your vase, You, unsuspecting, feel for me Almost a loneliness.

  12. 4 starsAfter 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 experience though I highly recommend this book if you re a fan of poetry and or Emily Dickinson.

  13. 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 the most powerful of lessons I take from Dickinson is to Tell all the truth but tell it slant The Truth must dazzle gradually Or every man be blind.

  14. See the Dickinson documentary A Loaded Gun for my take on this writer, arguably the best poet inEnglish 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 Amherst, and I have recited an hour of Dickinson on several occasions from memory In fact, Dickinson is fairly easy to memorize a hallmark of fine verse Perhaps only Yeats tetrametric Under Ben Bulben is easier to recall, a [...]

  15. 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 return to it later.Don t get me wrong, her innovative poetics is almost ghastly in its profundity, so much so that people use words like profundity or say that she, who had no powers of prescience that her biographer [...]

  16. 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 keys Before they drop full music on He stuns you by degrees, Prepares your brittle substanceFor the ethereal blow, By fainter hammers, further heard, Then nearer, then so slow Your breath has time to straighten Your brain [...]

  17. 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 study her growth as a poet and explore her obsessions over time It also provides the date of first publication if there was one A must have for any poetry enthusiast, highly recommended for those who have a modest interes [...]

  18. 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.

  19. 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 editors and publishers, Emily Dickinson is a rara avis among major American poets She shunned the spotlight, kept to herself and her family in her home in Amherst, MA, refusing to cater to popular tastes She never published in her [...]

  20. 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 of mortality better than anyone alive And how she could convey that with words wow.

  21. 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 biographical revelation that ultimately seems beside the point I d rather just take her inner world as its own end On the other hand, I ve also started an edition of her letters She is fascinating I m wondering now how to present [...]

  22. 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 American soul Tell all the Truth but tell it slant Success in Circuit liesToo bright for our infirm DelightThe Truth s superb surpriseAs Lightning to the Children easedWith explanation kindThe Truth must dazzle gradually [...]

  23. MUCH madness is divinest senseTo a discerning eye Much sense the starkest madness T is the majorityIn 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 small in length but gigantic in impact For a classic example look above Some argue it is about John Brown, written shortly after his execution, an interpretation I adore Fantastic.

  24. 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 BirdThat kept so many warm I ve heard it in the chillest land And on the strangest Sea Yet, never, in Extremity,It asked a crumb of Me.

  25. 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.
