Overview

A marvelous new illustrated selection of verse by one of the greatest and most loved poets of American literature—Emily Dickinson.

Emily Dickinson is among the best-known, most widely read poets of the twentieth century. She composed over one thousand unique lyrics dealing with religion, love, nature, death, and immortality, only seven of which were published during her lifetime. Her verse, noted for its aphoristic style, its wit, its delicate metrical variation, and its bold and startling imagery, has had great influence on twentieth-century poetry. A Murmur in the Trees will include 115 poems taken from the definitive Johnson edition of Dickinson. About sixty of the poems will appear alongside an original pencil drawing created especially for this volume by Ferris Cook.

More than one hundred years after her death, Emily Dickinson is an American classic and one of the most influential poets of her era. A Murmur in the Trees will be a marvelous gift for her many devotees—and a magical introduction to her work for anyone who loves poetry.

Meet the Author

Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886) was born in Amherst, Massachusetts, and is considered to be one the greatest poets of American literature. The daughter of a prominent lawyer, she spent almost all of her life in her birthplace, gradually withdrawing from local activities, and spending her later years as a virtual recluse in her father's house. She composed over one thousand unique lyrics dealing with religion, love, nature, death, and immortality, only seven of which were published during her lifetime. Her verse, noted for its aphoristic style, its wit, its delicate metrical variation, and its bold and startling imagery, has had great influence on twentieth-century poetry.
Ferris Cook is the illustrator of three companion books to this series: Odes to Common Things and Odes to Opposites by Pablo Neruda, and The Rose Window and Other Verse From New Poems by Rainer Maria Rilke.
