The damned fool! Undressing Emily Dickinson! She kept ordinary people at a distance

Billy Collins (22 March 1941 -, New York City). The damned fool! Undressing Emily Dickinson! She kept ordinary people at a distance. As Code Master's Putting Billy Collin's Clothes Back On says, Collins, like a lot of modern poets and artists, has only a tepid respect for the great poets of the past. They love to speak of them with an inappropriate familiarity, a boorish irreverence: Billy Shakespeare. Collins too. And what human truth is he exploring here?

Emily Dickinson lived as a recluse in Amherst, Massachusetts, dedicating herself to writing a "letter to the world"--the 1,775 poems left unpublished at her death in 1886. Today, Dickinson stands in the front rank of American poets. This enthralling collection includes more than four hundred poems that were published between Dickinson's death and 1900. They express her concepts of life and death, of love and nature, and of what Henry James called "the landscape of the soul." And as Billy Collins suggests in his Introduction, "In the age of the workshop, the reading, the poetry conference and festival, Dickinson reminds us of the deeply private nature of literary art."From the Trade Paperback edition.

The 5 stars are for Dickinson herself, although I am the editor of this selection which was originally published by Everyman's Poetry. It is widely used in schools and when I last visited the Dickinson Homestead in Amherst MA it was the selection chosen to be featured in their small bookshop of Dickinsoniana. My purpose in editing this selection was to offer a general selection that emphasized the passionate the complex Dickinson without neglecting the poems written in her occasional child persona. To my knowledge it is the only selection that includes a complete "fascicle," (the hand-bound notebooks in which Dickinson self-published groups of poems) so that the reader can decide whether the fascicles are consciously developed lyric sequences or simpler anthologies. In editing the works I used Thomas H. Johnson's the Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson (1955), Carl Franklin's facsimiles in The Manuscript Books of Emily Dickinson (1981) and original manuscripts consulted at Harvard's Houghton Library and elsewhere.
I bought this copy on Amazon because I have run out of copies to give to friends! Having received a fixed payment for my edition, I do not profit from continued sales. The Everyman paperback showed a path through greenery on the cover rather than the highly feminine ladies' dresses of the Phoenix edition.

I have never been "into" poetry but purchased this collection for a Lifelong Learning course I'm taking at Lipscomb U. in Nashville. I signed up for the course, The Recluse (Dickenson) and the Rock Star (Frost), because of the wonderful retired professor who is teaching it. I found I had a real connection with Dickenson because of her love of nature and really loved this collection of her poetry.

This is not about the selection itself but the product. It is printed on yellow-ish thin and porous paper (like Starbucks napkin). The font size is very small. But it is thin/light weight thus handbag friendly.

Great book as it combines her most famous poems and some of her correspondence. Also great essay by one of the only writers who met her. Gave me new insight.
Mysterious Wrench
A kind of 'greatest hits' of Emily Dickinson's poems. Only fifty-four pages, but the best-known poems are here, nearly a hundred of them. At this price, a great place to start.
Voodoosida
These are classic poems, although I'm just not a huge fan or her writing style. But I do respect the writer.
Hellblade
This is the perfectly sized volume to tuck into your bag for those random free moments during your day when you'd like to refresh your psyche with a tad of Dickinson. Sure, there are far better complete volumes out there of her work, and I highly recommend them. However, without over-analyzing the issue, I find this book to be a comfort while waiting on line at the bank, in the dentist's office, at the car dealership, etc.

And, despite the fact that it might label me as hopelessly shallow -- the cover is pretty as well.
What a marvelous book. I will keep reading it over and over.
