Synopsis

With an Introduction by Emma Hartnoll.

Initially a vivacious, outgoing person, Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) progressively withdrew into a reclusive existence. An undiscovered genius during her lifetime, only seven out of her total of 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 recognised as a major poet of great depth, startling originality and courage for as she wrote: 'Assent and you are sane; /Demure you're straightaway dangerous / And handled with a chain'.

Wordsworth Editions

A question we are often asked is how we are able to offer such high quality books at such low prices. The simple answer is that we are a small family business, with rather old-fashioned values. We do not have corporate headquarters or a massive marketing budget, and this helps us to achieve our ultimate aim: making classic fiction and non-fiction books available at an affordable price, but without any compromise on quality.
