Emily Dickinson - Envelope Poems
Although a very prolific poet, Emily Dickinson (1830–1886) published fewer than a dozen poems. Instead, she created small handmade books. In her later years, she stopped producing these, but she continued to write a great deal, and at her death she left behind many poems, drafts, and letters. It is among the makeshift and fragile manuscripts of Dickinson’s later writings that we find the envelope poems gathered here. These manuscripts on envelopes (recycled by the poet with marked New England thrift) were written with the full powers of her late, most radical period. Intensely alive, these envelope poems are charged with a special poignancy—addressed to no one and everyone at once. Full-color facsimiles are accompanied by Marta L. Werner and Jen Bervin’s pioneering transcriptions of Dickinson’s handwriting. Their transcriptions allow us to read the texts, while the facsimiles let us see exactly what Dickinson wrote (the variant words, crossings-out, dashes, directional fields, spaces, columns, and overlapping planes).
Emily Dickinson - I'm nobody! Who are you?
In her room in Amherst, Emily Dickinson wrote some of the most remarkable poetry ever composed. Only a few of her verses were published in her lifetime, but now all her poems are read worldwide. Her beautiful visions and haunting words cast a brilliant eye on the world around us and the world within us all. From the landscapes of nature to the landscapes of the mind, Emily Dickinson captures life in all its details and desires.
Emily Dickinson - Selected Poems
Emily Dickinson was born in 1830 in Amherst, Massachusetts, where she spent almost all her life. In her late twenties she withdrew from normal social activity, rarely went outdors, and stopped seeing even her closest friends. But she did wrote lots of letters and when she died in 1886 it was discovered that she had also written over 1000 poems - only seven of these had been published in her lifetime. Book publication of her work commenced in 1890.
Emily Dickinson - The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson
Emily Dickinson proved that brevity can be beautiful. Only now is her complete oeuvre--all 1,775 poems--available in its original form, uncorrupted by editorial revision, in one volume. Thomas H. Johnson, a longtime Dickinson scholar, arranged the poems in chronological order as far as could be ascertained (the dates for more than 100 are unknown). This organization allows a wide-angle view of Dickinson's poetic development, from the sometimes-clunky rhyme schemes of her juvenilia, including valentines she wrote in the early 1850s, to the gloomy, hell-obsessed writings from her last years. Quite a difference from requisite Dickinson entries in literary anthologies: "There's a certain Slant of light," "Wild Nights--Wild Nights!" and "I taste a liquor never brewed." The book was compiled from Thomas H. Johnson's hard-to-find variorum from 1955. While some explanatory notes would have been helpful, it's a prodigious collection, showcasing Dickinson's intractable obsession with nature, including death. Poem 1732, which alludes to the deaths of her father and a onetime suitor, illustrates her talent: My life closed twice before its close; It yet remains to see If Immortality unveil A third event to me, So huge, so hopeless to conceive As these that twice befell. Parting is all we know of heaven, And all we need of hell. The musicality of her punctuation and the outright elegance of her style--akin to Christina Rossetti's hymns, although not nearly so religious--rescue the poems from their occasional abstruseness. The Complete Poems is especially refreshing because Dickinson didn't write for publication; only 11 of her verses appeared in magazines during her lifetime, and she had long-resigned herself to anonymity, or a "Barefoot-Rank," as she phrased it. This is the perfect volume for readers wishing to explore the works of one of America's first poets.
Emily Dickinson - New Poems of Emily Dickinson
For most of her life Emily Dickinson regularly embedded poems, disguised as prose, in her lively and thoughtful letters. Although many critics have commented on the poetic quality of Dickinson's letters, William Shurr is the first to draw fully developed poems from them. In this remarkable volume, he presents nearly 500 new poems that he and his associates excavated from her correspondence, thereby expanding the canon of Dickinson's known poems by almost one-third and making a remarkable addition to the study of American literature. Here are new riddles and epigrams, as well as longer lyrics that have never been seen as poems before. While Shurr has reformatted passages from the letters as poetry, a practice Dickinson herself occasionally followed, no words, punctuation, or spellings have been changed. Shurr points out that these new verses have much in common with Dickinson's well-known poems: they have her typical punctuation (especially the characteristic dashes and capitalizations); they use her preferred hymn or ballad meters; and they continue her search for new and unusual rhymes. Most of all, these poems continue Dickinson's remarkable experiments in extending the boundaries of poetry and human sensibility.
Emily Dickinson - Károlyi Amy - Emily Dickinson válogatott írásai / Károlyi Amy fordításai és tanulmányai
Minden versének négy összetevője van: természet, érzelem, halál és öröklét. Tehát a van és a nincs. A halál csak annak okozhat ilyen élethossziglani problémát, aki minden ízében élvezi az életet. Verseinek sokkal kevesebbet mond az életrajz. Emily Dickinson 1830-ban született Amherstben, Massachusetts államban. Verseit az akkor legtekintélyesebb amerikai irodalmi folyóirat szerkesztőjének küldi el. Az megsejt valamint a rendhagyó géniuszból, és bátorítja, hogy írjon formában és tartalomban is kerékvágásba illő verseket. Emily Dickinson erre nem volt hajlandó, ezért a jövőbe, érvényesülésbe vezető út bezárult előtte. Ami nem sikerült az élőnek, sikerült a holtnak. 1886-ban halt meg, és már 1890-től kezdve gyors egymásutánban jelentek meg kis kiadásokban versei. De voltaképpen 1945-től indult el Emily Dickinson útja a világhír felé. Az értékelés ingamozgása, mely addig Poe-t és Whitmant lendítette magasba, most Emily Dickinsont repíti. Emily Dickinson verseivel való foglalkozás élethossziglani elfoglaltságot jelent a fordítónak. A több mint 40 verssel kibővített második kiadást szeretettel adja át az olvasónak Károlyi Amy.
Emily Dickinson - The Selected Poems of Emily Dickinson
The daughter of a lawyer from Amherst, Massachusets, Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) was initially a vivacious, outgoing person, but she progressively withdrew into a reclusive existence. Emily was a truly undiscovered genius during her lifetime and astonishingly only seven out of her total 1,775 poems were published prior to her death. She had an immense breadth of vision and a passionate intensity and awe for life, love, nature, time and eternity. Originally branded an eccentric, Emily Dickinson is now recognized as a major poet of great depth, startling originality and courage - for as she wrote:'Assent and you are sane; / Demur, you're straightaway dangerous / And handled with a chain'.

Emily Dickinson - Poems by Emily Dickinson, Series I
This selection from her poems is published to meet the desire of her personal friends, and especially of her surviving sister. It is believed that the thoughtful reader will find in these pages a quality more suggestive of the poetry of William Blake than of anything to be elsewhere found,--flashes of wholly original and profound insight into nature and life; words and phrases exhibiting an extraordinary vividness of descriptive and imaginative power, yet often set in a seemingly whimsical or even rugged frame.

Emily Dickinson - The Collected Poems of Emily Dickinson
Born in Amherst, Massachusetts in 1830, Dickinson began life as an energetic, outgoing young woman who excelled as a student. However, in her mid-twenties she began to grow reclusive, and eventually she rarely descended from her room in her father’s house. She spent most of her time working on her poetry, largely without encouragement or real interest from her family and peers, and died at age fifty-five. Only a handful of her 1,775 poems had been published during her lifetime. When her poems finally appeared after her death, readers immediately recognized an artist whose immense depth and stylistic complexities would one day make her the most widely recognized female poet to write in the English language. Dickinson’s poetry is remarkable for its tightly controlled emotional and intellectual energy. The longest poem covers less than two pages. Yet in theme and tone her writing reaches for the sublime as it charts the landscape of the human soul. A true innovator, Dickinson experimented freely with conventional rhythm and meter, and often used dashes, off rhymes, and unusual metaphors—techniques that strongly influenced modern poetry. Dickinson’s idiosyncratic style, along with her deep resonance of thought and her observations about life and death, love and nature, and solitude and society, have firmly established her as one of America’s true poetic geniuses.
