This is now the definitive text of Dickinson, a poet one can open at random and find something exhilarating.The Guardian

Mr. Franklin is the recognized authority on Emily Dickinson’s poetry and gives us 1,789 poems, the largest and most accurate collection of her verse… For all those who love Emily Dickinson’s unique verse this is a treasure trove from which to choose. This is a publishing coup of the first order.Contemporary Review

Not only is it the ‘authoritative’ and ‘definitive’ edition of her complete poems, it is a gorgeous volume printed by the Belknap Press, complete with a crimson ribbon bookmark… For those who like Emily Dickinson and who want all the poems as she wrote them, unmolested by well-meaning editors and thoughtless publishers, this is the book. In one volume you can hold the closest thing to the real Dickinson that anyone will ever get.Barnes & Noble (bn.com)
