5.0 out of 5 stars Resonances, 31 Mar 2009
This review is from: Taking Off Emily Dickinson's Clothes (Paperback)
This is one of Billy Collins older collections (1988 I think) but, as an Emily Dickinson fan, I thought I'd start here.

I was expecting humour - he's a witty poet. I didn't expect him to get inside my skin quite so empathetically. American life doesn't always translate across The Pond, but his images still resonate for me, despite the fact that I'm never likely to need 'another reason why I don't keep a gun in the house'.

Recommended.

Update: OK - I see where I went wrong. I wrote this back in the day, before I got to grips with the star system. This is a 5* collection.

Perhaps you could amend the 1 star rating to fit with the review?

Thank you for the question Susan - it's given me an opportunity to correct the injustice I seem unwittingly to have done this book. It's a great collection. Enjoy!
