  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mindy M | 11/27/2013

    " I fought liking Emily Dickinson all my life, but I recently got this book and I'm really enjoying it! I surprised myself. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christin | 11/8/2013

    " When you write melancholy poems of teenage angst and turn them in for extra credit to your English teacher, this is the book she gives you as a graduation gift. The question is: are you destined to be a hermit too? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosie | 11/5/2013

    " Pretty good stuff. I used to be a huge fan of Dickinson, but I found her poems less intriguing this time around--maybe because I've read her stuff too much, maybe because this was required reading. Most of the poems in this book are pretty well-known. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elysse | 10/27/2013

    " Great poems, absolutely LOVED them. I also found it interesting how her friends titled the poems, though I didn't always see why they chose what they did. All in all, great book, you can get it really cheap online. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Moe | 10/22/2013

    " It was ok. Most of her poems are not really my cup of tea, if you know what I mean. But it was nice to have a book that includes all three series of her poems. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aaron | 10/21/2013

    " Brief and beautiful nuggets of wisdom, with a few true greats. It's a tiny volume - read it in an hour or savor it for a few days. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marco Tamborrino | 9/8/2013

    " Meravigliose, tutte meravigliose. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lary | 7/15/2013

    " good and depressing, but her nature poems are suprisingly uplifting "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Headle10 | 2/13/2013

    " I adore the way she pulls from nature and finds the beauty and lessons there. I just love her poetry!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Irene | 8/23/2012

    " Dickinson's poetry is not easy, but it is often amazing. I saw Julie Harris perform in the Belle of Amhurst and was so enthralled I couldn't stop there. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Guitar Chick | 6/4/2012

    " Not many poets beat Emily. Recommended for all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky Jo Gesteland | 5/1/2012

    " I didn't read all of them...who has? (There are over 1800.) But my students read 25 of them and I got all excited about Dickinson again. What an amazing poet. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Isabella | 3/9/2012

    " she is my favorite poet. if you enjoy poetry this is a fantastic book. it inspires me "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stefania T. | 1/22/2012

    " Poesie meravigliosamente malinconiche e delicate, ma mentirei se sostenessi che mi abbiano sconvolto la vita. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelli | 10/9/2011

    " She locked herself away for her craft. I love to read her words. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 8/24/2011

    " Mooie gedichten in een mooie taal ! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mona | 8/22/2011

    " Sad, clever, beautiful "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Philip | 5/14/2011

    " the pocket classic does violence to Dickinson. One can safely say that anyone providing a positive review of this is actively harming poetry with thoughtlessness. This symbolizes what kills writing, and has no resemblance to the author's poems. Shelve it under pulp or "recycle bin." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Moe | 4/3/2011

    " It was ok. Most of her poems are not really my cup of tea, if you know what I mean. But it was nice to have a book that includes all three series of her poems. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Callie | 1/6/2011

    " I've had this book for about 10 years now and I usually have it with me or nearby. I love Dickinson - I love how direct she can speak about a topic by leaving a blank space. This collection of her works is special, and includes some of her personal letters. Such a fan. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandra | 1/4/2011

    " She writes wonderful poetry. I have read her this winter and many times in the past. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Robin | 1/3/2011

    " The rhyming scheme just doesn't sit well with me. I enjoyed a few poems but kept sing-songing them in my head. Further cementing my theory that I only like free verse. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shauna | 1/3/2011

    " My favorite poet of them all. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Venus | 11/25/2010

    " I had no time to hate, because
    The grave would hinder me,
    And life was not so ample I
    Could finish enmity.

    Nor had I time to love, but since
    Some industry must be,
    The little toil of love, I thought,
    Was large enough for me.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellen | 11/5/2010

    " She's kicking my butt. Monastic life style choice, or did she have a choice? What would she have lived in another century, girl that she was? Queen of metaphor. Porous, joyous, imprisoned recluse. She's joyous and she kind of hurts to read.... really good though! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimathy | 9/17/2010

    " Emily is an amazing poet, she strung words together in such a way that I could not help but to love her poems. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lesley | 7/16/2010

    " I remember some of the poems from high school and college, but others were new to me. Nice collection. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 6/26/2010

    " I didn't read all of them...who has? (There are over 1800.) But my students read 25 of them and I got all excited about Dickinson again. What an amazing poet. "

    " This isn't the edition I own and have read, but I couldn't find mine on the site. Nevertheless, I love Dickenson's poems and get a kick out of perusing my book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathe | 4/9/2010

    " I return to her poetry over and over again, always finding something new, discovering what I need, laughing or smiling, and ultimately, understanding myself a little more each time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hoda | 3/26/2010

    " i am nobody who r u?

About the Author
Author Emily Dickinson

Emily Dickinson (1830–1886) was born in Amherst, Massachusetts. Throughout her life, she seldom left her house, and visitors were scarce. The people with whom she did come in contact, however, had an enormous impact on her thoughts and poetry. By the 1860s, she lived in almost total physical isolation from the outside world but actively maintained many correspondences and read widely. Her poetry reflects her loneliness, and the speakers of her poems generally live in a state of want, but her poems are also marked by the intimate recollection of inspirational moments which are decidedly life-giving and suggest the possibility of happiness. The first volume of her work was published posthumously in 1890 and the last in 1955.
