    I am not any kind of expert with poetry everything I know is self taught and I have followed my interest in finding poets I fell in love with Emily s poems a long time ago as many of them seemed to speak to me directly However, many of her poems challenged me so I bought this book as a guide.It is a dry read, as you may expect but it has helped me to contextualise Emily Dickinson and has shed some light on some of her poetry I just wish it could beaccessible andpassionate.
