Poems: Series One

Read by Shurtagal

(4.2 stars; 21 reviews)

Renowned poet Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886) wrote many many poems. This collection, "Poems: Series One", presents the first installment of the complete poetic works of Miss Emily Dickinson. It is broken into four parts: Life, Love, Nature, and Time and Eternity.

The verses of Emily Dickinson belong emphatically to what Emerson long since called "the Poetry of the Portfolio,"--something produced absolutely without the thought of publication, and solely by way of expression of the writer's own mind. The poetry found here is then entirely honest, and indicative of the authors true feelings. (Summary by Shurtagal and Thomas Wentworth Higginson) (1 hr 8 min)

(2 stars)

not recommended to someone who's English is second language (like me)

an ill-equipped reader for these strange and lovely poems

(2.5 stars)

Unfortunately, the reader of this compilation of Emily Dickinson's poetry has a tendency to stumble over words (mispronouncing some words too) and generally reads too quickly for my liking. However, the poems here are great and the reader's inadequacies, though frequently exhibited, are not constant; and so, for these reasons, I don't consider this reading unlistenable.

Emily D. lives on
