Book Title: The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson

Author: Thomas H. Johnson

Book Description:

Emily Dickinson’s poetry has intrigued me ever since I was a college student. Dickinson was one of the few female poets with no outside influence from the masculine society of her day. Her poetry, reflecting honesty and sincerity towards all subjects, contains purity free of the need to hold an image or persona. Alone for her entire adult life, Emily Dickinson conveys emotions and feelings both blissful and despairing—often through ambiguous anecdotes of nature, love, and life.
