The Kindle version is not the Faber version. It has the punctuation 'modernised' and consequently the poems suffer. The only Kindle versions I can find with the original punctuation restored by Thomas H Johnson are the Poet To Poet selection edited by Ted Hughes and also Emily Dickinson: Everyman's Poetry [Kindle Edition] edited by Helen McNeil. Both of these selections are available in paperback. They are wonderful! Otherwise, buy the Faber and Faber complete. The 3 stars is for this edition only, not the poems!
