Se si guarda in una prospettiva storica l'opera di Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)non è difficile cogliervi molti presagi della lirica novecentesca: l'assolutaconcentrazione sul valore e il potere della parola, il taglio audace di certemetafore, la predilezione per la misura breve e il lampo improvviso, latensione estrema del verso. Ma non è questa la prospettiva più emozionan ...more

Sweet skepticism of the Heart-
That knows - and does not know-




Sometimes there is only one place to go: within, where the mind and body communicate poetically. Those poets of her time, they stayed securely snuggled into their worlds, while she traversed the unbeaten paths around them, creating abstract spaces made tangible through musicality. They stayed within their conformed art and hers elevated both the physical and mental, while she wrote from a house they deemed her prison, but one that wou

Como todas as minhas palavras de amor para Dickinson serão ridículas (obrigada Álvaro de Campos), transcrevo as de Bloom — e as Dela.

"A força da sua poesia é indubitável, como a da Bíblia, de Shakespeare, de Blake e de Whitman. Apenas se irá tornar um desafio cada vez maior à medida que passem os séculos. Como Whitman, ela há-de deter-se algures, à nossa espera."
Harold Bloom

"I found the words to every thought
I ever had - but One -
And that - defies Me -
As a Hand did try to chalk the Sun

To Races - nurtured in the Dark -
How would your Own - begin?
Can Blaze be shown in Cochineal -
Or Noon - in Mazarin?"

I've read a fair bit of her work...and all I can say is that it astounds me, seduces me, challenges me, enlightens me...I can't lay claim to being any kind of expert but I love her work. I'm actually kind of hesitant to read more of her because I think I'm not ready yet...

Era un sabato mattino che succedeva ad una notte quasi insonne e affollata di problemi in forma di mostri invincibili, il mattino, già di per sé, con la sua alba dalle dita rosate, rischiara il nero della notte, ma può molto anche la lettura in punta di giorno di poesia in genere, la poesia ha questo potere benefico e terapeutico. nella fattispecie sono stati i versi di Emily Dickinson, tonico, balsamo che lenisce i dolori, amplifica l’essere, rinfranca il sentirsi vicini a un’anima bella e prof ...more

Ma secondo voi è normale che io, nonostante sia consapevole che Emily Dickinson sia una delle maggiori poetesse statunitensi, continui a immaginarla nella campagna inglese? Ogni volta che leggevo una delle sue poesie “naturaliste”, la mia mente partoriva pensieri come “che bella descrizione della campagna inglese”. Questo tanto per darvi un'idea dello stato brado della mia mente e del perché vi chiami “prodi seguaci”...

MR. HIGGINSON,--Your kindness claimed earlier gratitude, but I was ill, and write to-day from my pillow.

Thank you for the surgery; it was not so painful as I supposed. I bring you others, as you ask, though they might not differ. While my thought is undressed, I can make the distinction; but when I put them in the gown, they look alike and numb.

I was lucky enough to study dear Emily for an entire semester of school. She is often remembered as a recluse but I like to think of her as secretly passionate and brilliant! If you like to solve riddles than the poems of Emily Dickinson are for you! In this edition you can read the poems in their original format. I mean would someone who is completely shut off from the world write-

Wild nights should be

It is a truth universally acknowledged that I hate poetry. I really, truly hate it. Or I did, until I came across one of Emily Dickinson's poems, and subsequently devoured an entire collection of them. Emily Dickinson writes with magic- her poems are lyrical and emotional without the melodrama I'd come to associate with most poetry. They're absolutely beautiful in their simplicity.

Emily, quanta ardente passione, di quanto amore eri capace. Hai dato voce alle mie emozioni, rendendole parola senza sbiadire la voce dell'anima. La tua poesia è rugiada; purissima, candida, ingenua. Dolce Emily, mi hai commosso.

Elysium is as far as to
The very nearest room,
If in that room a friend await
Felicity or doom.

What fortitude the soul contains,
That it can so endure
The accent of a coming foot,

For the last several months, I have been working through The Poems of Emily Dickinson: Reading Edition, and having finished it I can say it is one of the best books of poetry I have ever read. Dickinson is a fascinating poet, and I know of no better compilation of her poems better than this one.

When she died in 1886, Dickinson left behind nearly 1800 individual poems, 99% of which had never seen the light of day outside correspondance. She led an extremely private life, well known in her time on

It took me years to ingest these poems... mostly saved them for bathtime reading. Emily Dickinson's life is shrouded in mystery, and her poems are a small window into her period of time, quiet musings about social and political practices and institutions of the time. In her poems, she expresses a great prediction for change; the world going on and unfolding with new ideas. She also seems to rail against the expectations of her own time, and turns to the natural and spiritual world for eternal co ...more

EMILY DICKINSON
(10/12/1830 - 15/05/1886)
Emily Elizabeth Dickinson can best be described as a prolific poet who in later life prefered the solitude of being indoors and interacted mainly through letters to her friends. I read that in her life she had written over1800 poems but only a selected few were published while she was still alive, the remainder after her death.
She was inspired throughout her life by other writers and I am in love with her poetry.

Life is death we’re lengthy at,
Death the hinge of life.

This is the entire text of poem #502 in this edition, an edition gleaned from the editor’s three volume 2,500 sources variorum set of 1998. Dickinson’s poems are characteristically pithy and short, with idiosyncratic punctuation and grammar. Few were published in her lifetime. And due to the editorial changes made in them, she was very unhappy in those that were. American literature owes a great debt to her younger sister who, contrary to Em

Aware that I don't read enough poetry, this collection of every one of Emily Dickinson's 1789 poems stood out on the library bookshelf.

It presents the poem in chronological order, with a section at the end for undated poems. Two connected themes recur in the poems, death and Christianity.

To judge this book accurately, it needs to be considered on two fronts. For starters, the aim of editor RW Franklin in putting together a "complete" collection of Dickinson's poems. On this front, the volume is

I rarely read poetry and picked up this slim volume more in desperation to have something to swap in the campsite library. The Englush book selection is very limited - trashy thrillers or Mills & Boon - so, seeing Dickinson on the Spanish shelves, I thought I might translate a few poems. As luck would have it, this edition is bilingual leaving me only to translate the introduction and Manent is not too pretentious!

Every once in a while you read a writer who makes you realize how pedestrian your own writing is, as well as virtually everyone else’s. Emily Dickinson is such a writer. Unmarried, untraveled and writing before 1887, she nevertheless wrote in a modern, worldly and powerful style at which I can only marvel. The meaning of life, death and eternity seem much clearer in her slender hands.

Even though I previously read some of her work as a child, I can only fully appreciate her now that I have the co

I did struggle with maintaining interest for the first half of this volume. It repeated the themes of birds, bees, butterflies and brooks over and over, and seemed intent on only observing nature while offering half-hearted moral exhortations. The last part redeemed the collection somewhat. It changed its theme to a reflection on death and emptiness, using more emotive and evocative language that was much more pleasing. Overall, Dickinson's style of very short lines, with irregular concern for r ...more

In early days of nanowripo (Ah! I don't think I have spelled it correctly), one day was dedicated to Emily Dickenson's poetry style and I was very impressed to read her one of the famous poems: Hope is the thing with feathers. Now having read pretty much of them, I think she has an amazing art to describe a simple noun like 'patience, hope, smile, pain' in a variety of wonderful ways. The way she describes 'expanded time and smile's exertion' is mind blowing. Anyone who love poetry must try read ...more

Para ser el primer libro de poemas que leo (ENTERO), me ha gustado bastante, sobretodo si en cada uno de los poemas de Dickinson traten de un tema diferente y que este fuera de lo acostumbrado (aunque bueno, esto se los dice una lectora que hasta ahora ha leido algunos poemas que siempre están centrado en el amor o desamor).

This is such a good edition of Emily Dickinson. I would recommend it over any others I've read.

Emily Dickinson is addictive. Her poems seem so simple until you really dig into them, and that duel simplicity and complexity is what really draws me into them.

And for someone who spent most of her life in her home, Dickinson has some interesting insights into social life; in "I started Early - Took my Dog -", her depiction of male sexual pursuit is literally one of the most realistic things and intri

Questa raccolta di poesie, alcune più brevi (in certi casi oserei dire fulminanti nella loro brevità) altre più lunghe coprono un arco di diversi lustri e trattano, con uno stile impeccabile, svariati temi, dalla natura alla morte. Alcune di queste poesie sono state poi soggette ad una gestazione lunga e fatta di svariate modifiche che in certi casi sono state anche drastiche nel senso che hanno cambiato sensibilmente ed in certi casi anche radicalmente quello che era il testo originale.

This rating is just a reflection of how much I "got" this volume of poetry, it has a modern affect I wasn't expecting, and is so unlike the 19th century poetry I have read. This volume, edited and published by her friends, reads like two entirely separate volumes of poetry. The first part has recurring themes of nature with American puritanism undertones. The second part, by far the most beautiful and interesting to me, included emotional, compelling imagery and reflections on life and death.

This happened to be the volume--the complete collection, untainted by editing--that helped foster my love of Dickinson. It's probably best to find a way to group the poems; I wouldn't read it chronologically from cover to cover. With that said, everything from Emily's most obscure verses to her most canonical are in this book. So...read slowly and thoughtfully. Search for the most gothic poems if it suits you or the most mushy if that suits you. Enjoy it.

Emily Dickinson was an American poet who, despite the fact that less than a dozen of her nearly eighteen hundred poems were published during her lifetime, is widely considered one of the most original and influential poets of the 19th century.

Dickinson was born to a successful family with strong community ties, she lived a mostly introverted and reclusive life. After she studied at the Amherst Aca
