It's just the formatting that gets the low rating. The introduction, and Emily Dickinson's poetry itself, deserves a full five stars!
Amazon have an annoying habit of refering you to a different Kindle edition from the print edition, without warning. If there are any humans left behind the wall of automation they have constructed, I would love to tell someone to fix it.
At her best Emily wrote some of the best poems in the history of human kind. With a transcendent beauty and a wry sense of humour too. Touching the stars in a way few artists are capable of. Pure genius.
And to the credit of Ted Hughes, he has - with a keen and empathetic eye - really selected the cream of the crop.
If you only want one book of the grande Emily this could very well be it.
I just love Emily's tone, always with that slight smirk behind it, as if inviting a gasp of shock. Her rythms are often like playground taunts, but her subject matter (from death to religion to nature to marriage) is far from childish. That, for me, is the beauty of the writing, which encapsulates huge ideas and comments in little bubbles of stanzas.
For such a recluse, Emily has an incredible perspective on the world.
