it was amazing
bookshelves: my-favorites-of-all-time
Read in October, 2008

What can I say? Emily Dickinson's poetry is the most stunning, haunting poetry I've ever read. I'd read just a few of her poems before decidin to tackle her complete works. It's an incredible experience to read poem after poem that almost makes you feel like she understood the emotions of mortality better than anyone alive. And how she could convey that with words ... wow.

booklady She's my favorite poet too! I could spend an hour -- or a day -- just reflecting on a single poem of hers; they are that rich! I often wonder if it was her life lived apart and the time and opportunity it afforded her for deep introspection that gave her such wisdom...?
