Collected Poems of Emily Dickinson

( 364 )

Overview

Emily Dickinson was a prolific writer and yet, with the exception of four poems in a limited regional volume, her poems were never published during her lifetime. It was indeed fortunate that her sister discovered the poems—all loosely bound in bundles—shortly after Dickinson died.

Overview

Emily Dickinson was a prolific writer and yet, with the exception of four poems in a limited regional volume, her poems were never published during her lifetime. It was indeed fortunate that her sister discovered the poems—all loosely bound in bundles—shortly after Dickinson died.
Collected Poems of Emily Dickinson is the complete collection of the first three volumes of poetry published posthumously in 1890, 1891, and 1896 by editors Mary Loomis Todd and Thomas Wentworth Higginson. The volumes were all received with high acclaim and contain some of her best-known poems. It was in the twentieth century, however, that Dickinson was finally recognized as one of the great poets and, without dispute, the most popular.
The name Emily Dickinson is a legend now, but she never had the opportunity to taste the wine of success and fame in her lifetime. In fact, if there was any legendary status she received in her life, it was not for poetry but for the way she lived her life. She received local notoriety in her native town of Amherst, Massachusetts, as an eccentric recluse who, with few exceptions, would never set foot outside her house. Yet, as her poetry will attest, she had a keen insight of life, love, nature, and death and seemed to be content with her station in life.
Reading through the poems in Collected Poems of Emily Dickinson, you will see that she was indeed a woman of independence and spirit, a poet that lives today in our hearts and minds.

    not faithful to Dickinson's poetry

    this edition does not preserve Dickinson's unique use of punctuation and dashes. Truly a failure on the part of the editor.

    Great Poems, but Editing Makes Baby Jesus Cry

    Emily Dickinson is awesome---plain and simple---and I think everyone deserves a great big tome of her poems. However, I wouldn't recommend this one. While all collections you pick up may be edited, this one is the worst of the litter. In fact, most of the dashes Dickinson is known for using so religously don't exist in this one, replaced by commas and semicolons and such. I've kept the rating high in honor of Dickinson, but I'd get a different edition if I were you.

    Excellent Poetry - Terrible Edition

    Dickinson's use of dashes is one of her trademarks, and in an attempt to make the text more visually appealing (one has to imagine), the idiosyncrasies of Dickinson are lost. Don't give up on the poet - give up on this edition (spend the extra ten bucks and buy a definitive edition!).

    Soothing Words for the Soul

    When you picture Emily Dickinson you not may think of a younger woman who sat at a desk with a feather pen. You may think of her as a social woman who held parties and spent hours outside writing her personal thoughts on the life she encountered. But, in truth, Emily Dickinson was a young woman who spent hours inside one house in one room most of her life. You wouldn't expect the depth of the writing in this collection of poems, especially coming from a woman who had this lifestyle. Dickinson's writing style seems to be depressing, but the more you think about them, they can be quite soothing and uplifting. If you pick this book up, you must be in the mood to really concentrate, because these poems can be difficult to understand. These poems were written in the 1800's, so it might help to be familiar with this writing. However, this book provides a taste for different language than that of today. These poems also provide relief and escapefrom your life, helping you to uncover a deeper way of thinking, and access to someone else's thoughts. These poems are wonderful, and I highly reccomend them to teens and adults of all ages!

    Poems from within

    I happen to disagree from the first comment made. I found these poems filled with beauty that was ever most well written. Sure some were depressing but thats the beauty of it. It gives you a new perspective of how to go through life. It blissfully tells you hidden advice as well as helps you think ever so clearly. I fell in love with every word written.

    Underappreciated Poet

    I really am not a fan of poetry. I enjoyed this collection though. I find Dickinson's poems to be about as exciting as poetry has gotten for me. The fact that the structure of her writings is so unconventional makes them even more endearing. I found it hard to understand the meaning of many of the poems though. My attention span for poetry is short so take my review with a grain of salt.

    I Love Emily Dickinson!

    Emily Dickinson is an amazing poet in my point of view. I just started getting really into her work when I started reading this book. At first i had seen a poem of hers that was in my social studies book and I loved it. That poem inspired me to start writing poems on my own time. One day I hope my poems will be as good as Emily Dickinson's!

    Sweet Poetry

    I read this book every now and then when I wanted to delve into some wonderful poetry, and I will tell you I was not disappointed. While I must admit that sometimes I didn't fully understand the whole meaning of some of Emily's poems; I always understood the heart behind them. I recommend this to any poetry lover or someone who wants to broaden their literary tastes.

    A unique experience in viewing the world by a poet with 20 20 vision.

    This is a great collection of the poems of perhaps one of America's premier poets. Every emotion is explored here. You'll laugh and cry and nod your head saying, "Ah yes, how true, how true". A comforting book to peruse on a quiet evening.

    Depressing

    Emily dickenson was eccentric. Her poems reflect how sad and mournful she was. These are really boring and depressing.

    Sometimes good, sometimes rambling

    Kafka's writing is the opposite of straight forward. He loves allegory, vagueness, surreal descriptions...

    And sometimes this makes for very weird, but very interesting, stories (Metamorphosis). And sometimes this just makes for pages and pages of rambling where all you want is for him to Get To The Point (Josephine).

    It's a mixed bag, and reads like an Escher painting done in words. Definitely worth checking out.

    Emily Dickinson

    A few years ago I went through a phase where I loved Poems, it was all I read and I would memorize them, and repeat them all the time. And during that phase I bought this book and Loved it. She was and still is my favoret poets. If you are a big fan of poetry you should read this collection.
