    One thought on “Emily Dickinson: Letters”

    1. Behold, unwrap the highest genius Like Keats alone among poets, Dickinson s letters exhibit that genius In fact, she compares winter to, Keats s bird, who hops and hops in little journeys Andrew Marvell s letters, for instance, are humdrum affairs mostly written in his public voice as parliamentary representative ED writes with her poet s ear, Friends are gems infrequent II.352, 1859 Or, check this sentiment which would compound among moderns even inaugural poets I have heard many notedly Bad re [...]

    2. This small book prompts me to read a larger collection Dickinson s letters are mostly prose poems, beautiful observations connected with her everyday life Writing to a friend just after her father s death His heart was pure and terrible, and I think no other like it exists I am glad there is Immortality, but would have tested it myself, before intrusting himYour beautiful hymn, was it not prophetic It has assisted that pause of space which I call father And to the critic Higginson To live is so [...]

    3. I found some sections to be really interesting and entertaining, but it was just too much of the same stuff over and over The letter she wrote when she was 13 14 shows that she was a certifiable genius, ridiculous I also think she s one of the most mysterious people in the history of the world, if not 1.

    4. Emily Dickinson es una dama enigm tica, rom ntica, sensible y que ama, ama mucho y con toda su alma, literalmente A trav s de sus cartas conocemos m s all de la Emily que vivi en reclusi n auto impuesta y con fiebres constantes En sus cartas comparte sus alegr as y tristezas con sus amigos del colegio, primos, hermanos y maestros o editores Emily fomentaba el cari o a trav s de sus cartas, que enviaba casi constantemente, que en visitas presenciales Un tema recurrente es la noci n de mortalidad [...]

    5. An enjoyable read if you like the poetry of Emily Dickinson Truth if such a rare thing, it is delightful to tell it I find ecstasy in living, the mere sense of living is joy enough.

    6. The letters begin when Dickinson was 15 15 And she writes with the maturity, wisdom, and eloquence of someone with far years and experience I linger over each letter, watching to find where the gifted poet she became shows up in the teen aged Emily At 15, I wore too much hair spray and mooned over boys Emily was writing about gardens, the passing of the seasons, and death most affectingly, the boys she knew who died in the Civil War So far, though, her letters shed little light on why she clois [...]

    7. The Emily of the letters is different from the Emily of the poems She is overwhelmingly full of love and affection and sweet thoughts in the letters of course this is just a selection a different tone from the poems An intriguing companion but medium weight in comparison to the poems.I would ve appreciated annotations to some of the letters in this edition The way the notes were presented in this edition were a bit awkward, coming as they did in the same heading and format as the recipient and [...]

    8. An insight into the poet Emily Dickinson outside of her poems The letters have been condenced by the looks of things and I suppose a bigger book would have been needed to print the letters in full She was a very funny, obversent and highly sensitive woman, which can be seen by her poems Although these letters give insight into her humour than perhaps her poetry does Normall I don t read letters by eminent writters as I feel that letters no matter who wrote them are very private On this occasion [...]

    9. A very nice introduction to the life and letters of Emily Dickinson Fragos notes in her introduction that Dickinson found life startling and ecstatic and comical and terrible, often all at the same time She lived in awe Through the selected correspondences, readers will quickly realize that Dickinson s genius was not reserved for her poetry as lines from her letters sorted here in ten categories will suprise and astound and inspire awe Plus, readers will learn why Dickinson was called the belle [...]

    10. I ve always loved Emily s poems, and reading her letters was a glorious way to see her from a different side Unsurprisingly, she has quite a way with language, and a fantastic sense of humor, too The edition I have is written by a contemporary of hers, so it is curated carefully to show a particular arc of Emily s life with narrative interspersed by this friend, but it whet my appetite to try to find a copy of the complete letters and read them all in full.

    11. MR HIGGINSON, Are you too deeply occupied to say if my verse is alive The mind is so near itself it cannot see distinctly, and I have none to ask.Should you think it breathed, and had you the leisure to tell me, I should feel quick gratitude.If I make the mistake, that you dared to tell me would give me sincerer honor toward you.I inclose my name, asking you, if you please, sir, to tell me what is true That you will not betray me it is needless to ask, since honor is its own pawn.

    12. Affection is like bread, unnoticed till we starve, and then we dream of it, and sing of it, and paint it, when every urchin in the street has than he can eat We turn not older with years, but newer every day I really love Emily Dickinson I feel abandoned, because she died before I met her She is my kindred spirit I hope to read everything by her Tenderly your kindred spirit, Hind

    13. Emily s poems are delightful, but her letters give insight into how her mind works She is honest, timid at times and then fierce by turns And, oh my, what a little minx she can be And what a surprise to find that a lot of her poems were in her letters Anybody who likes Emily s poems should get a copy of her letters She is one of the few poets who get better with digging deeper.

    14. Delightful and odd Reading these excerpts from her correspondence, you get a sense of ED as a peculiar, intense, mischievous person who was quite attached to and engaged with her select loved ones and friends I copied many of her turns of phrase into my reading journal to continue to chew on them.

    15. Very quaint Checked it out from the library Not sure if I ll be able to finish it before it s duewhich means I probably won t recheck it out What does stand out as notable is her recurring comments about happiness She didn t seem to believe she could be happy, or was surprised when she was Interesting.

    16. Generally, Emily s letters are lovely and give you glimpses into brain but never fully let you in The edition I read was the one compiled by Mabel Loomis Todd and I could ve done without her commentary, particularly since it was interspersed among the letters I would have preferred it either at the beginning or and the end of each chapter.

    17. Reading Emily s letters completed the picture of the sensible and sensitive person we know from the poems They show it s not necessary to live an adventurous life in order to create the most exquisite poetry ever For me it was like making a new friend all over again.

    18. Gandr z katr v stul ir pr tu sa iebjo a fr ze, pat ja reiz m to bl vums iet drusku nom co s Jauki gan jebkur gad jum.

    19. Only interesting for it s style Some letters are written so smooth and with a rhythm that makes it nearly a poem.
