Book Review: The Poetry of Emily Dickinson

The Poetry of Emily Dickinson by Emily Dickinson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Well done!

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.
