Publisher writes

The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson is the only one-volume edition containing all Emily Dickinson's poems. The editor, Thomas H. Johnson, has presented the poems in their original texts; and where alternate readings were suggested, he has chosen only those which the poet evidently preferred. His introduction includes a brief explanation of his selection of texts as well as an outline of Emily Dickinson's career.

Author Information

Emily Dickinson, (edited by Thomas Herbert Johnson)

Emily Dickinson (1830-86) was born in Amherst, Massachussetts, where she lived most of her life as a recluse, seldom leaving the house or receiving visitors. She published just a handful of poems in her lifetime, her first collection appearing posthumously in 1890.

Judges' and contributors' comments

Mark Oakley: Always the spider and never the fly, Dickinson’s poems – untitled, unsettling and often undervalued – jump the heart back into pace.
