    1. MR HIGGINSON, Your kindness claimed earlier gratitude, but I was ill, and write to day from my pillow.Thank you for the surgery it was not so painful as I supposed I bring you others, as you ask, though they might not differ While my thought is undressed, I can make the distinction but when I put them in the gown, they look alike and numb.You asked how old I was I made no verse, but one or two, until this winter, sir.I had a terror since September, I could tell to none and so I sing, as the boy [...]

    2. It s a shame that this is the best edition of Dickinson s letters now in print, since it necessarily leaves out a lot of really incredible material Harvard should bring out all three volumes of the complete letters in paperback I can t believe it would sell less than, oh, the two volumes of Flaubert s letters, which Harvard does make available in paper To my mind, the biggest problem with this edition is that it emphasizes biography over writing and so devotes an enormous amount of space to the [...]

    3. Before you pick up a Dickinson biography, read these Selected Letters This collection takes you through Dickinson s life from with her most important correspondences to friends and family Thoughtful, humorous, passionate, and simply, purely Dickinson, these letters offer insights into the poet s life best experienced in her own words From Emily s hilarious, snappy Valentine letters, to her letters home from Mount Holyoke Female Seminary, to her friendship with Susan Gilbert, to her mentor corres [...]

    4. Maybe it s because I spent a week at a workshop talking about them, but I think these letters are unbelievably sweet, complicated, mysterious, and poetic They make me want to write tons of letters.

    5. Emily Dickinson is one of those mysterious figures in Literature I ve always been very curious about her Her life is just so incredible, so different She locked herself in her house little by little, and wrote amazing poetry that was only published after her death.I liked these letters because I could get a glimpse of that woman who left her mark upon Literature and yet, nobody know much about her I loved reading about her relationship with her siblings, with her sister in law, with some suppose [...]

    6. Certainly access to her books and blooms are reasons enough for reading these selected letters, but the insight given to her poetry, philosophy, and life as an iconoclastic woman of the 19th century is astounding Not only for scholars of Emily Dickinson, this collection of her letters is for an reader who wishes to immerse him or herself in the wit and wisdom of one of America s premier poets Documenting important familial and scholarly correspondences, Johnson s text provides ample notes about [...]

    7. Emlily Dickinson s letters have elegance and are crafted and written with, I think, just as much consideration and care as her poetry was It is fun to read the letters to gain a sense of everyday life at the time, but perhaps my favorite thing about these letters is the malleability of voice employed in their writing Depending on the recipient and Dickinson s mood, the letters vary wildly in tone and style Often dealing in the mundane day to day details of life, the letters contain a flow of viv [...]

    8. A Letter always feels to me like immortality because it is the mind alone without corporeal friend Many of these letters are as original and truthful of thought as her poems They also provide a biography in her own voice A few letters from her friend the poet, T.W Higginson are included, as well as the letters he wrote to his wife after meeting Emily Dickinson for the first time He quotes her as saying, If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire ever can warm me I know that is p [...]

    9. A little esoteric, a lot delightful Sometimes they are as weird as you d expect Other times they re as insightful as you d hope And the letters from Dickinson s childhood are precious we found a Hens nest with four Eggs in it I took out three and brought them in the next day I went to see if there had been any laid and there had not been any laid and the one that was there had gone so I suppose a skonk had been there or else a hen In the shape of a skonk and I dont know which.

    10. So entirely beautiful So strange I am very grateful that she lived You mention Immortality.This is the Flood subject I was told that the Bank was the safest place for a Finless Mind I explore but little since my mute Confederate, yet the infinite Beauty of which you speak comes too near to seek.To escape enchantment, one must always flee 194 You must let me go first, Sue, because I live in the Sea always and know the Road 306

    11. Undeniably, the letters give a view into Emily Dickinson s life, and the voice in her poems So many ecstatic letters sent to Higginson or Bowles The tender tone taken toward Otis Lord or her Norcross cousins My only dispute comes where the editor points out some part of Dickinson s relationship with Sue Gilbert Dickinson that I don t feel the full context for.

    12. You are a great poet and it is a wrong to the day you live in, that you will not sing aloud When you are what men call dead, you will be sorry you were so stingy Helen Hunt Jackson to Emily Dickinson, March 1876

    13. The editor of a competing volume explains despite herself why we must read Harvard s copyrighted edition theparisreview blog 20

    15. Me gusta mucho Emily Dickinson pero por momentos me aburri un poco although hay pasajes brillantes Lean su poes a Una quote Con qu sencillez llega al fin lo Insondable

    16. I find Emily Dickson fascinating, and this book is the best way besides her poetry, of course to understand what she was like.

    17. You know how I must write you down, down, in the terrestrial no sunset here, no stars,not even a bit of twilight, which I can poetize ED, letter to Susan Gilbert Dickinson

    18. I didn t get what I was looking for lots of letters between ED and her editor but her letters are lovely and we simply won t see correspondence like that any.
