Product description

In this series, a contemporary poet selects and introduces a poet of the past. By their choice of poems and by the personal and critical reactions they express in their prefaces, the editors offer insights into their own work as well as providing an accessible and passionate introduction to some of the greatest poets in our literature. Emily Dickinson (1830-86) was born in Amherst, Massachusetts, where she lived most of her life as a recluse. She published just a handful of poems in her lifetime, her first collection appearing post-humously in 1890.
