download pdf Emily Dickinson's Poems: As She Preserved Them Nach Emily Dickinson –

This should now be the definitive book of Emily Dickinson s poetry It is important to know the sequence in which she wrote her poetry And helps even if you have read The Life of Emily Dickinson by Richard B Sewell, a wonderful biography of her life There are so many books of poetry out there supposed to be her poetry, but instead are poems doctored by well meaning family and friends I have yet to read the entire book, as it is long, but I intend to compare it to the prior authoritative version of her poetry by R W Franklin.I had thought from the advertisement of the book that it would have photographs of her actual handwritten poetry fragments However, there weren t very many of such illustrations I might add that I also have the book, Emily Dickinson The Gorgeous Nothings, by Marta Werner andJen Bervin which includes multiple photographs of her handwritten poems or scraps of them However, this book has its own problems as the poems from which they are drawn is listed in the end of the book as a Directory of the Envelope Writings rather than with the photographs of her writing in the main part of the book The scraps photographed themselves do not necessarily help identify the actual poems by themselves.
