Overview

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.[3] Many of her poems deal with themes of death and immortality, two recurring topics in letters to her friends.

I was disappointed that the Go To and Bookmarking features do not work with this version, leaving the book pretty much useless on the Nook. Although the e-book says you can highlight a poem and go right to it, it doesn't. Sad, sad, sad - I was looking forward to reading Emily on my coffee breaks.

Great anthology of Dickinson. She captures a simple time in her poetry, while yet capturing the range of human emotions. Although it is a great read, it may be difficult to access certain poems in the e-book format. But that aside, hope you enjoy Dickinson.
