Summary

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) was a reclusive poet whose only friendships were carried out in correspondence. Despite writing almost 1800 poems in her life, very few were published until after her death. Here, the poems are presented in chronological order in their original form, unaltered by editorial revision, in one volume. It offers a wide-angle view of Dickinson's poetic development, from the clunky rhyme schemes of her youth, through valentines she wrote in the early 1850s, to the gloomy, hell-obsessed writings of her last years.

Difficult to listen to as an audiobook

The narrator made this book very hard to listen to. Her voice was monotone and had a weird melody to it, which did not fit this type of poetry at all. It demanded extreme focus to listen to the actual poems.
