One of the most striking American lyric poet, Emily Dickinson came to be known only after she passed away. This collectable edition brings together her finest poems including ‘heart! We will forget him!’ (47), ‘Success is counted sweetest’ (67), ‘“hope” is the thing with feathers’ (254), ‘I’m nobody! Who are you?’ (288), ‘The soul selects her own society’ (303), ‘I measure every grief I meet’ (561), ‘because I could not stop for death’ (712), ‘My life had stood — a loaded gun’ (754), and ‘Rearrange a “wife’s” affection!’ (1737). Dickinson did not give titles to her poems. They are known either by the first line of the poem or the numbers allotted to them in the Thomas H. Johnson’s edition, the poems of Emily Dickinson. We have used the numbers to identify the poems. A Specimen of her exquisite craftsmanship, each poem gives an insight into dickinson’s life and the emotions she experienced.

About the Author

The most intense and romantic poet of New England, Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) had composed more than a thousand startling and powerful poems by the time she turned thirty-five. Around eight hundred of these poems were collected in more than three dozen hand-sewn bundles, which were only discovered after her death. Described as her ‘letters to the world,’ Dickinson’s verses reflect the secluded life she led. Though her poems bristle with ideas of life, love, and divinity, she was majorly preoccupied with the themes of death, immortality, grief, and solitude. These themes were exquisitely woven in her free-flowing verses wherein the pauses and changes in thoughts and feelings were indicated with the abundant use of dashes. ‘I’m Nobody! Who are you?’ (288), ‘The Soul selects her own Society’ (303), ‘I measure every Grief I meet’ (561), ‘Because I could not stop for Death’ (712), ‘My Life had stood—a Loaded Gun’ (754), and ‘Rearrange a “Wife’s” affection!’ (1737) are some of her most popular and frequently anthologized works. Laced with precision and finesse, encompassing a wide range of feelings, Emily Dickinon’s poems continue to appeal to the readers and remain an indispensable part of world literature.
