Hardcover in Dust Jacket in Good Condition
The richest and most authoritative selected volume of Emily Dickinson's poems.
Here is the best of Emily Dickinson's poetry -- 576 poems that fully and fairly represent not only the complete range of Dickinson's poetic genius but also the complexity of her personality, the fluctuation of her mood, and the development of her style. Final Harvest is the first selected volume of Dickinson's work that draws from all 1,775 of her poems -- poems of such startling originality that they were doomed to obscurity in Dickinson's own lifetime.
"We have had to wait more than a century and a quarter for Final Harvest, the first truly selected poems of Emily Dickinson...In its own and special way, this book stands like a monument at the end of a very long road in literary history." --Christian Science Monitor
