Emily Dickinsons Poems: As She Preserved Them | Emily Dickinson, Cristanne Miller
11 posts | 2 read | 3 to read
Cristanne Millers major edition of Dickinsons poems presents the 1,100 poems the poet retained during her lifetime, in the form she retained them. Dickinson took pains to copy these poems onto folded sheets in fair hand, arguably to preserve them for posterity. Included are Dickinsons alternate phrases and the editors notes and Introduction.

Most of my haul from the Lucas County Friends of the Library sale. The John Green book is a signed, limited print from a charity event...

I also got a handful of older books that aren't in the pile. Mostly classic poetry and fairy tales.

thegirlwiththelibrarybag Most excellent!! 10mo
nudibranch Yeah fairy tales!! 😍 which ones? 10mo
DivineDiana Congratulations on the signed John Green! 👏🏻 10mo
Dragon Nice haul! 10mo

I‘m a day late and a dollar short for the September edition of #poetrymatters hosted by @LazyDays . The prompt for Day 1 was Favorite, and my selection is Because I could not stop for Death by Emily Dickinson. I love her uniqueness and her unconventional way with words. Her poetry seems timeless-it is as applicable today as it was when she wrote them. #poetry #emilydickinson

Lcsmcat One of my favorites! 1y
Bookishthoughts I was a day late, you're right on time!💓 1y
SharonGoforth @LazyDays That‘s good, thanks!! 😊 1y

I wanted to let you know that I may be off Litsy for awhile. Today while I was at work I got a call from the coroner's office that no one wants to get. Although it was not entirely unexpected, it was very disturbing. My younger daughter and I had been estranged for a long time, but it doesn't make it any easier. My granddaughter, who I do see often, is taking it hard. I found this poem by Emily Dickinson and think it is appropriate.

Alfoster Oh so sorry😢. Sending virtual hugs your way!💙💙💙 3y

Sharing this again as a reminder for poetry fans or those who are looking for a way to incorporate more poetry in their lives (like me). This is a challenge, but you don't have to sign up for anything. Think of it as more of a personal challenge to read poetry every day and then talk about it. Nothing fancy, just share your thoughts. Or share your own poetry if you would like. Just tag your posts #LitsyPoetry365 and tag me, too.

Lacythebookworm I didn't catch the original post, so thanks for the reminder! I think I could easily fit this into my morning routine! 🙌 3y
SharonGoforth @Lacythebookworm You're more than welcome! So glad you'll be joining in!! 😊 3y
BooksForYears I'm ready for this challenge! 3y

cathysaid I love this site from Minnesota Public Radio (think Prairie Home Companion) because it has a poem a day as well as several "on this day in history" facts. http://writersalmanac.org/ 3y
SharonGoforth @BooksForYears Awesome! Glad to have you!😊 3y
SharonGoforth @cathysaid Thanks for the link! Looks like a great site. 😊 3y

PurpleyPumpkin I've been trying to incorporate poetry into my reading list this fall. This will be a great way to continue the trend!👍🏽 3y
SharonGoforth @PurpleyPumpkin Yes!! Glad to have you!!😊 3y
saresmoore This is great! I'm in! I have a few books of poetry already on my challenge lists...what's one more reading challenge? [She said as her eye began to twitch uncontrollably from staring at the Google spreadsheet and Goodreads too long.] 3y
Alfoster Ok, I love this idea! I think I like contemporary poetry as I taught high school for so many years. Recommendations for me?? 3y
SharonGoforth @Alfoster Great!! I've been enjoying Mary Oliver's poetry, and am planning to read Rumi Kamur's Milk and Honey. You could try some contemporary anthologies such as The Best American Poetry series or any of the literary magazines (Ploughshares, Tin House, The Kenyon Review, as examples) for up and coming poets. This is a whole new area for me-so much to explore and learn! 3y
Kimzey Okay, I just came across this challenge a week late, but I'm all in! Can't promise, I'll post every day, but sure do love to read poetry! ❤️👍🏼 3y
SharonGoforth @Kimzey Glad to have you join us!! 3y
Vbrrgirl Just seeing this post but I love poetry and this plan to read one a day. (Which I do anyway!). Looking forward to sharing. 3y

Poetry - I know very little about it, but enough to know that I need to read more. Emily Dickinson is one of the poets I'm planning to read in 2017. #poetry #seasonsreadings2016 #litsypoetry365

Reading at least one poem a day is one of my goals for 2017. I got to thinking that perhaps other Littens might be interested in doing this, too, so I've decided to make it a challenge! All you need to do is read one poem of your choice each day in 2017 and post about it on #Litsy, using the hashtag #LitsyPoetry365. Please tag me, @SharonGoforth , on your posts as well. Looking forward to reading and discovering poetry with you!
