First published in 1890, this volume contains all three series of “Poems by Emily Dickinson”, an extensive collection of Dickinson’s very best poetry. Emily Elizabeth Dickinson (1830–1886) was an American poet commonly hailed as being among the most important figures in American poetry. Not much is known about her personal life, but evidence suggests that this is because she spent most of her time isolated from other people. Those who lived around her claimed that she took to wearing only white apparel and rarely left her bedroom in her later years. Despite being a prolific writer who produced a corpus of over 1,800 poems, only 10 were published during her lifetime. Her poetry was considered unusual for her time, incorporating a variety of odd features and breaking many of the conventional rules. Contents include: “First Series – I. Life, II. Love, III. Nature, IV. Time and Eternity”, “Second Series – I. Life, II. Love, III. Nature, IV. Time and Eternity”and “Third Series – I. Life, II. Love, III. Nature, IV. Time and Eternity.” A fantastic collection of classic poetry not to be missed by fans and collectors of Dickinson’s seminal work. Ragged Hand is proud to be republishing this collection of classic poetry now complete with an introductory excerpt by Martha Dickinson Bianchi.
