      Emily Dickinson is one of my favourite poets; she is the gothic queen of poetry. At times she strongly reminds me of Edgar Allan Poe. Her poems are less macabre than Poe’s and certainly less fantastical, focusing more on human perception of the darkness and the realities of life, but her work is undoubtedly on par with his in the vein of dark romanticism. There’s just something exceedingly morose about the way in which she writes. She was terribly depressed for much of her life, and such a p [...]

      There is no frigate like a book To take us lands away, Nor any coursers like a page Of prancing poetry. This traverse may the poorest take Without oppress of toll; How frugal is the chariot That bears a human soul! She described my needs with beauty and accuracy. That is all I need. A book. And coffee. And maybe something to eat. But mostly a book.Last weekend (weekends; the only time I can read like a maniac and write some things), I put on hold all my currently-reading books and dedicated myse [...]

      “There is the mosaic, pictogram concentration of ideas into which she codes a volcanic elemental imagination, an apocalyptic vision; there is the tranced suspense and deliberation in her punctuation of dashes, and the riddling, oblique artistic strategies, the Shakespearian texture of the language, solid with metaphor, saturated with homeliest imagery and experience; and everywhere there is the teeming carnival of world-life”Introduction by Ted Hughes in Selected Poems by Emily Dickinson.

      EMILY DICKINSON: Although very little is known about her life, she is still by name alone, one of the most well-known American poets to have ever lived. All of Ms. Dickinson's poems have the ability to move, provoke and delight any reader; however, these two poems tugged at my heartstrings the most:The Soul's Storm struck me every day The lightning was as newAs if the cloud that instant slit And let the fire through.It burned me in the night, It blistered in my dream;It sickened, fresh upon my s [...]

      This miniature book contains 65 selected poems written by Emily Dickinson between the years 1858 and 1865. Emily, an educated American woman from Amherst, Massachusetts lived an eccentric, reclusive life only anonymously publishing less than a dozen of the 1,175 poems she authored. The body of her work was discovered upon her death.The themes in this selection feature a deep sense of time, reflections on life, her surroundings, sorrow, spirit, a recurrent pondering of nature, mortality, occasion [...]

      This volume of Dickinson's poetry is selected with an introduction by the poet Billy Collins. The introduction is standard, with Collins establishing biographical details and historical context. Which is interesting, but common knowledge to anyone who has read anything about Dickinson. What makes the introduction interesting is Collins's perspective on Dickinson's "letters to the world": his admiration for her use of metaphor, her figure of speech that he likens to "a kind of New England surreal [...]

      If melancholy, longing and quiet passion are your game, Emily Dickinson is your girl.

      I can’t decide between two or three stars for this one. I guess this isn’t really my kind of poetry, but I don’t really read a lot of poetry in the first place. Some of the poems I didn’t have the energy to interpret, others came easier, and a couple amused me. The cover was my favorite part because it’s so beautiful. 😆

      Sendo bem sincera, eu entendo 0 de poesia. Mas os poemas da Emily Dickinson tem uma atmosfera tão própria que ficam dias ecoando na cabeça.

    16. Sheila on said:

      My first reading of Emily Dickinson is not actually in this collection selected by Ted Hughes. They were love poems called Wild Nights! Wild Nights! and I cannot live with you. I knew then that this poet is going to be one of my favorites. The imagery she paints is just too unique and original that reading them over and over again can produce different meanings for the reader. In this collection, Ted Hughes, also a notable poet, not least because he was married to Sylvia Plath, selected 40-plus [...]

      I especially love the one that sounds like a rap:The Wind didn't come from the Orchard — today —Further than that —Nor stop to play with the Hay —Nor threaten a Hat —He's a transitive fellow — very —Rely on that —If He leave a Bur at the doorWe know He has climbed a Fir —But the Fir is Where — Declare —Were you ever there?If He brings Odors of Clovers —And that is His business — not Ours —Then He has been with the Mowers —Whetting away the HoursTo sweet pauses of Ha [...]

      I love poetry, though I wonder sometimes whether I love the idea of poetry more than the thing itself. Of course that's not entirely true because give me a deep poem and I will always admire you (and maybe fall a little bit in love, too). Still. I don't read it often.I say this because I don't feel qualified to rate this selection. I read somewhere that for those who read/love/know Dickinson, the lack of her characteristic punctuation and capitalisation is a drawback in this edition. Understanda [...]

      Os poemas de Dickinson estão entre os mais tristes que já li, as imagens líricas que ela forma de maneira simples e minimalistas são carregadas de uma melancolia sem fim, dentre os melhores traduzidos desta edição felizmente bilingue está este:"Para as assombrações, desnecessária é a alcova,Desnecessária, a casa -O cérebro tem corredores que superamOs espaços materiais.Mais seguro é encontrar à meia-noiteUm fantasma,Que enfrentar, internamente,Aquele hóspede pálido.Mais seguro [...]

      Em honra de seu aniversário. Já tinha lido a edição da L&PM, reli esta porque Dickinson nunca é demais, tenho mais uma edição de sua poesia completa que lerei ano que vem porque a beleza que essa mulher traz é infinita e quem está dando nota baixa pra ela não a merece.

      The Forgotten GraveAfter a hundred yearsNobody knows the place, - Agony, that enacted there,Motionless as peace. Weeds triumphant ranged,Strangers strolled and spelledAt the lone orthographyOf the elder dead.Winds of summer fieldsRecollect the way, -Instinct picking up the key Dropped by memory." This is my first Emily Dickinson book and what I thought to be a tranquil reading soon became a complex and dense experience. Before long I could see why she was one of the most important poets of the n [...]

      My first reading of Dickinson's poetry and I LOVED them. This collection includes over 100 of her poetry obviously the best. At first glance the book and poems seemed so simple and easy to read so I picked it up to read in my spare time (if I ever get any) but it ended up stealing the time I wanted to spend on other books. There is a rich suggestiveness in her poems which generates a range of meanings, and they make you stop and think because every poem seems has more than one meaning. I see the [...]

      Ein Gedicht schöner als das andere. Emily Dickinson hat mit ihren Worten nicht nur unzählige Gefühle sondern auch die Schönheit der Natur eingefangen. Sie ist zweifellos eine meiner liebsten Dichterinnen.

    26. Amanda on said:

      I loved this. I love short poems and Emily - we're on a first name basis - is queen of the short form. I adored more than half the poems in this 100 poem collection. I'm pretty sure Emily and I would have gotten along, especially ten years ago when I was a goth and writing poetry every day!

    27. Judy on said:

      This is a good selection of poems, but the big drawback is that Dickinson's unusual punctuation has been smoothed out and most of her characteristic dashes have been removed.
