If you want to read every poem Emily Dickinson wrote, this is the book you want. There are over a thousand poems here, and it takes a while to get through, but overall I would say it's worth it. Her "life" and "love" poetry was a little broken and nonsensical at times, but she finished very strong with "nature" and "time and eternity", which were by far her better works. Don't hesitate to read from back to front if you need it to keep your attention.

We play at paste
Till qualified for pearl;
Then drop the paste
And deem ourself a fool.

The shapes, though, were similar
And our new hands
Learned gem-tactics,
Practicing sands.

“BEQUEST. You left me, sweet, two legacies, — A legacy of love A Heavenly Father would content, Had He the offer of; You left me boundaries of pain Capacious as the sea, Between eternity and time, Your consciousness and me.” 2 likes
