Meet the Author

The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson by Emily Dickinson - Edited by two of her friends Mabel Loomis Todd and T.W. Higginson - Emily Elizabeth Dickinson (December 10, 1830 - May 15, 1886) was an American poet. Born in Amherst, Massachusetts, 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. Considered 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.

While Dickinson was a prolific private poet, fewer than a dozen of her nearly 1,800 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.

This book has all of the poems from the famous poet. If you enjoy her poems than you should definitely buy the book. Her writing style is unique and she allows you to ponder over what she is talking about. Her poetry is ambiguous so you are able to read it without connecting it to her time period.

Various collections of Emily Dickinson's sparkling and innovative poetry are available, but this edition by Thomas Johnson remains, hands-down, the best. If you are going to invest in a collection of Dickinson's poetry -- and you should! -- look no further than the unparalleled Johnson edition.

If u simply want to read emilys poems this is a good book, but if using for educational purposes, it is not. Search engine and menu does not allow you to simply look up and locate a particular poem. It doesnt even give you access to the index of the poems which is the last section of the book. I was very frustrated and disappointed with this book.

Though Emily never did intend for anyone to read her poems -- other than herself -- the book shares everyone of her poems ever written. If you like poetry or the lyrics of Alanis Morrissette you need this book. It's a wonderful collection.

Book downloads to about 450 of the 500 pages. B & N support is NOT helpful when you just want the whole book you paid for. Plenty of employees to sell Nooks - not enough employees to support problems like this. On the phone for one hour - they promised to resolve the problem and get back to me in 24 or 48 hours. That was about 5 days ago.

This is an awesome collection to have in one's own library. Everyone should own Emily D. works, along with Ohio Blue Tips by Jeanne E. Clark, The Photos In The Closet by Daniel E. Lopez, and works by Alison Townsend.

If you are an Emily Dickinson enthusiast or general poetry lover, this edition is the one to get. Emily Dickinson seems to appeal to a wide range of people, and this is only part of the charm in her surviving work. This collection is definitely worth having in your book collection to come back to time and time again.

I can't open it or read it. My Nook app crashes every time on my Galaxy Tab S 8.4 in tablet. Will ask for refund.

Emily Dickinson wrote over 1000 poems in her life; this collection and others like it have less than 500. Additionally, I'm used to searching for poems by number (poem 403, 212, 693, etc.), so the organization threw me completely off. At the very least, add a table of contents next time, or include the poem number.

I got this is a Christmas gift last year, and I could be more delighted with it! I've been reading the whole thing cover to cover. Her poems are so beautiful, I particularly enjoy the ones about nature. The book itself is very pleasing to the eye, so happy to have this copy!
