Reading Group Guide

1. Dickinson never published any of her poetry during her lifetime; her work was discovered after her death. As Billy Collins notes in his Introduction, "It is fascinating to consider the case of a person who led such a private existence... as if she had lain asleep only to be awakened by the kiss of the twentieth century." What conclusions can you draw about the relationship of Dickinson's privacy during her life and the nature and texture of her art?

2. Dickinson's poetry continues to be extremely influential and important for twentieth-century readers; she remains one of the most widely read American poets to this day. What accounts for this remarkable, enduring popularity, in your view? What makes her poetry seem, to so many, so contemporary? What influence or legacy do you think her work has had or left?

3. Considering Dickinson in relation to some of the exemplary poetry of her time (for instance, Walt Whitman), what features seem to distinguish Dickinson's work? Are there contemporary poets that you would compare in some way to Emily Dickinson?

4. What innovations-stylistic or otherwise-do you find or notice in Dickinson's poetry? What themes or motifs seem to recur in her work, and what do these signify for you?

5. Which individual poems in this volume do you find most compelling and affecting? Which poems do you find most difficult, obscure, or hard to penetrate?

6. Billy Collins notes that Dickinson's poetry is particularly effective in its ability to "compress wide meaning into small spaces." Discuss this feature of her work in relation to poetry in general.

7. How do you think Dickinson'sidentity as a woman-in nineteenth-century America-plays into her art?

    List of selected poems

    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.

    A review of Emily Dickinson's poems

    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.
