Dressed always in white Emily isolates herself in her room, rarely straying from her Main Street home in Amherst, M.A. What is she doing?

She's changing the world.
She's shattering rules.
Smashing rules about poems, and words, and how to use them.

Challenging rules about woman can say and think. Destroying rules about how we can look at the universe, life, god and the mysteries of the night...

To hear the truth
sometimes you must be alone.
To tell your visions,
sometimes you must break rules.
Emily does.

Review:

The Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Archibald MacLeish has noted the "curious energy" which pervades Emily Dickinson's work. She, along with Walt Whitman, helps make up the very foundation of American poetry. This Modern Library edition from Random House is an excellent overview of Dickinson's work, divided by theme, including "Life," "Nature," "Love," and so forth. This volume of selected poems is a must for any serious reader of American poetry.

From the Inside Flap:

Emily Dickinson lived as a recluse in Amherst, Massachusetts, dedicating herself to writing a "letter to the world"--the 1,775 poems left unpublished at her death in 1886. Today, Dickinson stands in the front rank of American poets. This enthralling collection includes more than four hundred poems that were published between Dickinson's death and 1900. They express her concepts of life and death, of love and nature, and of what Henry James called "the landscape of the soul." And as Billy Collins suggests in his Introduction, "In the age of the workshop, the reading, the poetry conference and festival, Dickinson reminds us of the deeply private nature of literary art."
