Known as "The Myth of Amherst" for her withdrawal from society while still a young women, Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) had an inner life that was deeply emotional and intense. She know rapture and despair, pondered the wonder of God and the meaning of death. She broke tradition and was criticized for her seminal experiments with unorthodox phrasing, rhyme and broken meter, within concise verse forms, thus becoming an innovator and forerunner of modern poets.
R. W. Franklin was Director of the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library, Yale University. He received the Emily Dickinson International Society's Award for Outstanding Contribution.

This is now the definitive text of Dickinson, a poet one can open at random and find something exhilarating.-- "The Guardian"
Mr. Franklin is the recognized authority on Emily Dickinson's poetry and gives us 1,789 poems, the largest and most accurate collection of her verse...For all those who love Emily Dickinson's unique verse this is a treasure trove from which to choose. This is a publishing coup of the first order.-- "Contemporary Review" (10/1/2000 12:00:00 AM)
Not only is it the 'authoritative' and 'definitive' edition of her complete poems, it is a gorgeous volume printed by the Belknap Press, complete with a crimson ribbon bookmark...For those who like Emily Dickinson and who want all the poems as she wrote them, unmolested by well-meaning editors and thoughtless publishers, this is the book. In one volume you can hold the closest thing to the real Dickinson that anyone will ever get.-- "bn.com"
