One thought on “Selected Poems

  1. Bookdragon Sean

    Emily Dickinson is one of my favourite poets she is the gothic queen of poetry At times she strongly reminds me of Edgar Allan Poe Her poems are less macabre than Poe s and certainly less fantastical, focusing on human perception of the darkness and the realities of life, but her work is undoubtedly on par with his in the vein of dark romanticism There s just something exceedingly morose about the way in which she writes She was terribly depressed for much of her life, and such a pessimistic at [...]

    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 coffee And maybe something to eat But mostly a book.Last weekend weekends the only time I can read like a maniac and write some things , I put on hold all my currently reading books and dedicated myself to poet [...]

    1Because I could not stop for CopsThey kindly Stopped for MeThe Roadblocks covered all three lanesPerfect Symmetry2A narrow Fellow in the grassWith one eyed snake and smileYou may have met him did you notThe local paedo phile3I heard a Boy Band when I diedThe Radio was onAnd rushing so to switch it OffAnd catching my left ThumbAnd dancing round in Painful JigAnd tripping on a clodSuch Banal invitation toThe Vestibule of God4Hope is a thing with feathersThat perches in my BowlAnd pecks up all my [...]

    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 language, solid with metaphor, saturated with homeliest imagery and experience and everywhere there is the teeming carnival of world life Introduction by Ted Hughes in Selected Poems by Emily Dickinson I think of [...]

    We never know how high we aretill we are called to rise Because that fearing is so longHad almost made it dear.

  7. Brittney Andrews (beabookworm)

    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 most The Soul s Storm struck me every day The lightning was as newAs if the cloud that instant slit And let the fire through.It burned me in the night, It blistered in my dream It sickened, fresh upon my sight [...]

    This volume of Dickinson s poetry is selected with an introduction by the poet Billy Collins The introduction is standard, with Collins establishing biographical details and historical context Which is interesting, but common knowledge to anyone who has read anything about Dickinson What makes the introduction interesting is Collins s perspective on Dickinson s letters to the world his admiration for her use of metaphor, her figure of speech that he likens to a kind of New England surrealism , h [...]

    I can t decide between two or three stars for this one I guess this isn t really my kind of poetry, but I don t really read a lot of poetry in the first place Some of the poems I didn t have the energy to interpret, others came easier, and a couple amused me The cover was my favorite part because it s so beautiful.

    My first reading of Emily Dickinson is not actually in this collection selected by Ted Hughes They were love poems called Wild Nights Wild Nights and I cannot live with you I knew then that this poet is going to be one of my favorites The imagery she paints is just too unique and original that reading them over and over again can produce different meanings for the reader In this collection, Ted Hughes, also a notable poet, not least because he was married to Sylvia Plath, selected 40 plus pages [...]

    I especially love the one that sounds like a rap The Wind didn t come from the Orchard today Further than that Nor stop to play with the Hay Nor threaten a Hat He s a transitive fellow very Rely on that If He leave a Bur at the doorWe know He has climbed a Fir But the Fir is Where Declare Were you ever there If He brings Odors of Clovers And that is His business not Ours Then He has been with the Mowers Whetting away the HoursTo sweet pauses of Hay His Way of a June Day If He fling Sand, and Peb [...]

    I love poetry, though I wonder sometimes whether I love the idea of poetry than the thing itself Of course that s not entirely true because give me a deep poem and I will always admire you and maybe fall a little bit in love, too Still I don t read it often.I say this because I don t feel qualified to rate this selection I read somewhere that for those who read love know Dickinson, the lack of her characteristic punctuation and capitalisation is a drawback in this edition Understandably I d lov [...]

    The Forgotten GraveAfter a hundred yearsNobody knows the place, Agony, that enacted there,Motionless as peace Weeds triumphant ranged,Strangers strolled and spelledAt the lone orthographyOf the elder dead.Winds of summer fieldsRecollect the way, Instinct picking up the key Dropped by memory This is my first Emily Dickinson book and what I thought to be a tranquil reading soon became a complex and dense experience Before long I could see why she was one of the most important poets of the nineteen [...]

    My first reading of Dickinson s poetry and I LOVED them This collection includes over 100 of her poetry obviously the best At first glance the book and poems seemed so simple and easy to read so I picked it up to read in my spare time if I ever get any but it ended up stealing the time I wanted to spend on other books There is a rich suggestiveness in her poems which generates a range of meanings, and they make you stop and think because every poem seems has than one meaning I see there are som [...]

    The Martyr PoetsThe Martyr Poets did not tell But wrought their Pang in syllable That when their mortal name be numb Their mortal fate encourage Some The Martyr Painters never spoke Bequeathing rather to their WorkThat when their conscious fingers cease Some seek in Art the Art of Peace

    Ein Gedicht sch ner als das andere Emily Dickinson hat mit ihren Worten nicht nur unz hlige Gef hle sondern auch die Sch nheit der Natur eingefangen Sie ist zweifellos eine meiner liebsten Dichterinnen.

    I loved this I love short poems and Emily we re on a first name basis is queen of the short form I adored than half the poems in this 100 poem collection I m pretty sure Emily and I would have gotten along, especially ten years ago when I was a goth and writing poetry every day

  25. Judy

    This is a good selection of poems, but the big drawback is that Dickinson s unusual punctuation has been smoothed out and most of her characteristic dashes have been removed.
