Emily Dickinson
ISBN
9780316184137
This comprehensive and authoritative collection of all 1,775 poems by Emily Dickinson is an essential volume for all lovers of American literature.Only eleven of Emily Dickinson's poems were published prior to her death in 1886; the startling originality of her work doomed it to obscurity in her lifetime. Early posthumous published collections -- some of them featuring liberally "edited" versions of the poems -- did not fully and accurately represent Dickinson's bold experiments in prosody, her tragic vision, and the range of her intellectual and emotional explorations. Not until the 1955 publication of The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson, a three-volume critical edition compiled by Thomas H. Johnson, were readers able for the first time to assess, understand, and appreciate the whole of Dickinson's extraordinary poetic genius. This book, a distillation of the three-volume Complete Poems, brings together the original texts of all 1,775 poems that Emily Dickinson wrote. "With its chronological arrangement of the poems, this volume becomes more than just a collection; it is at the same time a poetic biography of the thoughts and feelings of a woman whose beauty was deep and lasting." --San Francisco ChronicleBinding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Emily DickinsonPublisher: Back Bay BooksPublished: 01/30/1976ISBN: 9780316184137Pages: 784Weight: 1.50lbsSize: 8.20h x 5.40w x 2.10dReview Citations: Library Journal 08/01/1997 pg. 142Newsweek 12/03/2007 pg. 20Christianity Today 01/01/2011 pg. 68
