2022 Reprint of the 1924 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition and not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Emily Elizabeth Dickinson (1830 - 1886) was an American poet. Little-known during her life, she has since been regarded as one of the most important figures in American poetry. Nearly a dozen new editions of Dickinson's poetry, whether containing previously unpublished or newly edited poems, were published between 1914 and 1945. Martha Dickinson Bianchi, Dickinson's niece, published collections of her aunt's poetry based on the manuscripts held by her family, whereas Mabel Loomis Todd's daughter, Millicent Todd Bingham, published collections based on the manuscripts held by her mother. These competing editions of Dickinson's poetry, often differing in order and structure, ensured that the poet's work was in the public's eye. Our edition reprints the collected poems originally published by Little, Brown and Company in 1924 using manuscripts held by Dickinson's family. More than 300 poems are collected and published.
