Emily Dickinson led a reclusive life writing the most wonderful poems in the world. Henry James once said about her writing that she described "the landscape of the soul". Most of these poems are no longer than eight or twelve lines, some even shorter, yet each one encapsulates life in its fullness. Many poems have made me understand the world and humankind better. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0679783350, Paperback)

The Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Archibald MacLeish has noted the "curious energy" which pervades Emily Dickinson's work. She, along with Walt Whitman, helps make up the very foundation of American poetry. This Modern Library edition from Random House is an excellent overview of Dickinson's work, divided by theme, including "Life," "Nature," "Love," and so forth. This volume of selected poems is a must for any serious reader of American poetry.
