Emily Dickinson
A Poet in Verse
Borrow

Emily Elizabeth Dickinson was born in 1830 in Amherst Massachusetts. Rightly regarded as a major American Poet her life was sheltered, introverted and reclusive. Despite writing over 1800 poems only a dozen or so were published during her lifetime. Her structures and wordings are at times difficult to get to grips with though recurring themes of religion and death certainly shadow many of her works. At her death is 1886 it is likely her work might have been lost had it not been for a publication by her sister. Indeed it was only in the 1950's that complete and unedited collection of her works was published. In the ensuing half century she has gradually climbed into pantheon of Greats. These poems are brought to your ears by Patricia Rodriguez, Richard Mitchely, Tim Graham, Gideon Wagner and Ghizela Rowe.

    January 2, 1995
    The Poetry for Young People series attempts to straddle the school and trade markets with these two volumes about America's best-known New England poets, but the results are uneven. Frost is superb, the poems introduced in a tone that is informative but not pedantic. Robert Frost's best work is organized into seasonal categories; an italicized gloss for each poem unobtrusively explains references and highlights themes. Sorensen's sketchy watercolors ground each poem in Frost's world of pastures, rose pogonias and yellow woods. Bolin's biographical interpretation of Emily Dickinson, on the other hand, is both coy and condescending. The reader is told, for example, that ``Emily may have seemed to some like a real `nobody' inside she knew she was somebody special.'' Chung's illustrations combine Holly Hobbie-style children with trite ornamentation; a rainbow springs from the center of a lily to accompany ``A word is dead'' while a pea pod containing heart-shaped peas illustrates other verse. Each book includes a brief biography of the poet and a short index. Ages 10-up.
