Breathtaking!

Amazing reading of E D's poetry! Julie Harris has such a fantastic voice! She brings the poetry to life. I was so moved by this performance, one of the very best.

Really beautiful reading of familiar lines from ED

Julie Harris read these familiar poems beautifully. Energy, curiosity, passion shine in Emily Dickinson.

Read well

Julie Harris reads this so well one can imagine it is Emily Dickinson herself. Unfortunately, there is not enough space between poems, and the number or identifier is not provided.

Julie Harris's voice is Dickinson's voice.

Julie Harris knows the heart and soul of Emily Dickinson. For the listener, Harris's voice is Dickinson's voice. Surely her reading is the standard that others attempt to reach. The poems are a wonder of poetic artistry in themselves, and Julie Harris's skill is a separate and additional subject of study----more than worthy of a five-star review. However, the book's format doesn't allow one to see the title of any of the 47 poems listed; and I wasn't able to choose my favorites from the list to listen to first or to hear again. I find this to be a serious flaw by the editor and extremely shortsighted. I wonder if this doesn't belie the editor's knowledge and interest in the subject of poetry altogether. Perhaps the publisher will correct this shortcoming..
