She was no solemn bookworm destined to grow into a crabbed recluse, but a lively original creature, fully participating in the joys and despairs of a busy circle of friends and relatives...Here was a woman capable of the most intense emotion who was forced, or forced herself, to crystallize her feelings into words and phrases. The letters and poems are all of a piece. The letters, in fact, read sometimes like the raw materials of the poems.
ÝThese letters¨ present us with as inward a view of one of God's rarer creatures as we are likely to be given...The letters themselves are as no others. The briefest line can be a mystery (and, when fathomed, a communion), the formal note a sign...If Ýthese letters¨ are put alongside those of...Coleridge and Keats, they will present the most striking contrast in a poet's reactions and sensibilities. But they will stand there unashamed.
Emily Dickinson's letters are among the major treasures of American literature...[In] this one-volume selection...virtually everything of interest to the general reader or nonspecialist has been retained.

It is almost certainly produced via Optical Character Recognition software. Even a cursory examination discloses SERIOUS ERRORS uncorrected (in a poem appended to a letter to Samuel Bowles the OCR stabs at the non-word "sacraftient", which is in reality supposed to be "sacrament"
The only virtue of this book is that it does have the letters, and that they are gathered together by recipient. That's it. To make it usable, I have had to go through and draw lines separating the letters, notations, etc.
There is no index of any kind. You will have to do your own labeling even of the table of contents.
Shameful that this is even being offered for sale
