A very detailed summary on the poems that are reviewed and also very helpful. The book covers all aspects from Dickinson's unique style of writing to her background in puritain New England. This book also covers the area of why Dickinson's poetry was so meloncholic, although not in great detail. This is purely a study guide and not for reading purposes.

It's a good study aid, with notes on themes and relevant background information on Dickinson's life. It's useful to kick-start a thought process, but unfortunately only deals with a limited amount of poems.

Emily Dickinson wrote poetry although she stayed away from society most of her life. She never married. Yet she can write very sensitively about the human condition. If you have a romantic inclination and are not afraid of a little morbidity, this is one of those classics you should read (study, more like).

Useful starting point for students but to teach you need a much more detailed guide. Save yourself the money and put it towards something more comprehensive.

Very helpful for my daughter's exam - it got her the 'A' grade. Useful to have as a guide for the exam.
