Beautiful poems. I may get/borrow the paperback so I can reflect on them and understand them better. a lot of metaphors and imaginative description and emotion. only problem is librivox isnt always automatically playing the next chapter/poem which it usualky does/used to.

a simple, smooth reading of these unadorned poems


(4.5 stars)

A simple, smooth reading of these unadorned poems. Great. (A small hum in the background of the tracks is a shame, but it can be ignored.)


(5 stars)

read well, a lot of effort put into tone and diction. some annoying feedback in the background at higher volumes but it's not distracting or overpowering. beautiful poetry, read with appropriate emotion.

I love the poems of Emily Dickinson. I've read and listened to them since I was a child and they never grow old.
