This book is an insult to all who love reading. Don't buy it, you'll only encourage them to produce more like this. Our copy will end up in the recycle bin, it's not even worth taking to charity.
There is no getting away from it, but Emily Dickinson is a great of American poetry, and to that end she is taught in schools throughout the US. If you have never read her before then this little book would be an ideal introduction. Containing 207 short verses this is a little treasury of her work, bound in a hardback cover and with its own integral bookmark. This is small enough to easily fit in a pocket and is ideal to carry with you to refer to when you need some inspiration, or have a quiet moment.
Some peole may be put off by her use of dashes, slant rhyme (half rhyme) etc., but she is always well worth reading and you may well find yourself becoming a fan.

I bought this book for one specific poem but sadly it wasnt in .But i still love it.Its a good size to put in your pocketPublished 18 months ago by hazel patterson
A lovely intro into Emily's thoughtful gentle world -
a transparently beautiful and delicate butterfly touching her
world and ours on gossamer wings .
Beautifully produced, with a good sample of her poems. Sadly, it missed out a particular poem I was looking for. Nevertheless I will continue to enjoy this book for many yearsPublished on 24 May 2013 by Kirk
