1.0 out of 5 stars Shame on Billy Collins., 24 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Billy Collins has committed a horrible crime: not only has he butchered Dickinson's syntax, he has actually changed words (e.g., replaced "cleaving" with "cleavage"!).

There is no excuse good enough to justify this outrage. One has to wonder: Would he have done this to verse written by a man? Would he stand for anyone doing this to HIS poetry?

Don't buy this book. Read Dickinson's Dickinson.
