The Poetry of Emily Dickinson by Emily Dickinson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Emily Dickinson was an incredible poet. This edition, with its beautiful pages, honors her work. The publisher did a wonderful job with the printing. I am glad to see Dickinson’s star, again, rising this generation. She is, perhaps, the greatest poet in American history; she is immortal.
A lovely edition that will add nicely to any bookshelf.

There is no Frigate like a Book To take us Lands away Nor any Coursers like a Page of prancing Poetry - This Traverse may be the poorest take Without opress of Toll - How Frugal is the Chariot That bears the Human soul. -Emily Dickinson
I cannot pretend to be a connoisseur of poetry, although I enjoy reading verse. What I can tell you, with confidence, is Dickinson’s work makes my heart leap, stop, turn about face, and get lost in mystery. I had not really thought of reading her until I watched Dickinson on Apple TV+. Which goes to show she is still enticing and relevant. I am, now, a huge fan of hers and I think many of you feel the same way.
T.S. Eliot remains my favorite poet, but Emily Dickinson is a very close second. Tell me whom your favorite poet is? I would love if you would comment the name of your favorite poem.

Some books are like lovers never forgotten. When we remember time spent together, we can, again, feel their warmth.
If you want to know how a specific set of people, in a specific century, felt over a specific issue, read their popular writing.
