Publisher's Summary

Poems by Emily Dickinson is a compilation of the poetry of Emily Dickinson in three different series, each composed of the following subjects: Life, Love, Nature, Time, and Eternity.
The notoriously reclusive New England poet broke all the rules of Victorian-era poetry to create a new, uniquely American style. Despite the fact that the majority of the poems recited here were never published in her lifetime, Dickinson remains one of the most influential voices in American literature.

Audible Editor Reviews

Introverted and reclusive, American poet Emily Dickinson lived almost her entire life in seclusion away from everyone other than her family. Her poetry, which was published four years after her death, often expressed her loneliness, along with her thoughts and feelings on themes such as death and immortality. Narrator Marianne Fraulo performs Dickinson's poems with a kind of restrained passion allowing the poem's interior moods - from the melancholy to the arch and self-deprecating - to come through to the listener. Fraulo also expresses Dickinson's idiosyncratic punctuation with thoughtful playfulness as she pauses and dances through stanzas.
