Selected Poems by Emily Dickinson

Into the Wild

Read Selected Poems Online Free - Emily Dickinson was born into a prominent New England family. Sociable as a child, she grew increasingly withdrawn, and in later years became known as a recluse.

Only seven of her poems were published during her lifetime. After Emily's death in 1886, her sister Lavinia discovered 1,775 poems bound in small packets tied with thread.

They were first published in 1890, attracting unexpected attention in literary circles. With spare, precise language, Emily Dickinson conveyed a penetrating vision of the natural world and an acute understanding of the most profound human truths.

There is no frigate like a book To take us lands away, Nor any coursers like a page Of prancing poetry. This traverse may the poorest take Without oppress of toll; How frugal is the chariot That bears a human soul! She described my needs with beauty and accuracy. That is all I need. A book. And...

“A Book” There is no frigate like a book To take us lands away, Nor any coursers like a page Of prancing poetry. This traverse may be the poorest take Without oppress of toll; How frugal is the chariot That bears the human soul!

“There is the mosaic, pictogram concentration of ideas into which she codes a volcanic elemental imagination, an apocalyptic vision; there is the tranced suspense and deliberation in her punctuation of dashes, and the riddling, oblique artistic strategies, the Shakespearian texture of the languag...

We never know how high we are till we are called to rise; // Because that fearing is so long Had almost made it dear.

EMILY DICKINSON: Although very little is known about her life, she is still by name alone, one of the most well-known American poets to have ever lived. All of Ms. Dickinson's poems have the ability to move, provoke and delight any reader; however, these two poems tugged at my heartstrings the mo...

An appreciation of Emily Dickinson's poetry is greatly improved by a familiarity with the enigma of her personal life. Who was this strange hermit, who produced such an abundance of poems - childlike, with nursery-rhyme cadence; wildly inconsistent - yet earnest and pure, and possessing a pretern...
