Synopsis

American poet Emily Dickinson is revered around the world, and influenced many feminist artists and writers. Her work is some of the best known and most quoted or adapted:

'Hope is the thing with feathers, that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all' Emily Dickinson

Dickinson received a very good education, but chose to return home to Amherst, Massachusetts, where she spent the rest of her life, writing more than a poem a day until her death. Her refusal to compromise her highly condensed expression meant that only a tiny fraction of her work was published in her lifetime. Even today, her work feels startlingly modern:

'Dogs are better than human beings because they know but do not tell' Emily Dickinson

'The dearest ones of time, the strongest friends of the soul - BOOKS'

This is a superb collection from a truly iconic poet.
