I was looking for a book for school, more specifically a certain poem. I think this site would be much more useful if there was some way to link to a list of the poems in the book, it might help customers figure out a little better what they are looking for.

Emily Dickinson¿s poems can be long and boring or so interesting that you just can not put that huge book of poems down. It is all in what type of reader you are and what poems you read of hers. Considering there are thousands of her poems throughout many different books, it¿s impossible to read them all. The book I read (which I felt had a very diverse variety of poems) was ¿The Selected Poems of Emily Dickinson¿; this book I feel had everything you are looking for. For the common reader or the deep poetry person this book contains something for everyone¿s taste buds. It also contains different chapters on different topics such as: life, nature, love, and time and eternity. To anyone who would love to sit down and read a few good poems before going to bed, this book is for you. Dickinson can express herself in many different ways, taking you on a new roller coaster every time. The different topics expressed in this book all have their different ways of being written and no matter how short or long, the writing is just better and better. I found that the first few poems in the book started off slow. I found the first few poems slow because they were all pretty long and very hard for me to comprehend. After that they all flowed nicely together and they got better every time. They were better because they flowed nicely together and were shorter and easier to read one after another. Overall this book was very good. I gave this book four stars for all the reasons mentioned above and because i enjoyed reading it.
