Overview:  The three volumes of Dickinson’s poems that were published in the years following her death are combined here in one book.

What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Chris: “Dickinson was prolific and her poems range from brilliant to not so much.  Read around in this volume and find the ones you love.  There are bound to be a few.”

Ethan: “Emily Dickinson’s poetry certainly reflects the interesting dichotomy of whimsy and stubbornness that she showed in her own live. Ever in white clothing, a baking enthusiast, yet a self-proclaimed hermit–Emily pioneered poetry with a lovely combination soft and pleasant subject with harsh punctuation and innovative slant rhymes. ”
