Overview

Here is the real Emily Dickinson -- the only comprehensive and reliably authoritative trade editions of the poet's work. While it is today universally acknowledged that Dickinson was a poet of the highest order, the startling originality of her poems doomed her work to obscurity in her own lifetime. Early posthumous publication efforts -- including the 1924 Complete Poems edited by the poet's niece and published by Little, Brown -- did not fully and fairly represent Dickinson's bold experiments in prosody, her tragic vision, or the range of her intellectual and emotional explorations. Not until the publication of Harvard University Press's 1955 The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson, comprising three hardcover volumes edited by Thomas H. Johnson, were readers able to understand and appreciate Dickinson's entire oeuvre. These books are also the fruit of Thomas H. Johnson's prodigious scholarship. The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson distills the three-volume hardcover Complete, bringing together in a single volume all 1,775 poems that Dickinson wrote. Final Harvest is the only truly comprehensive selection of Dickinson's verse: 576 poems that trace the arc of her development as a writer. A feast for all who love poetry, these are the standard texts against which all other Dickinson collections must be measured.
