Only five of Emily Dickinson's poems were published while she lived; today, approximately 1,500 are in print. Dickinson's poetry reflects the power of her contemplative gifts, and her deep sensitivity courses through her correspondence as well. Lovingly compiled by a close friend, this first collection of Dickinson's letters originally appeared in 1894, only eight years after the poet's death. Although she grew reclusive in her later years and seldom saw her many friends, she thought of them often and affectionately, as her missives attest. The small cast of daily characters in Dickinson's little world takes on vivid life in the letters, and her famous wit sparkles from every page.

    “Lord, keep all our memories green,” and help on our affection, and tie the “link that doth us bind” in a tight bow-knot that will keep it from separation, and stop us from growing old; if that is impossible, make old age pleasant to us, put its arms around us kindly, and when we go home, let that home be called heaven.

    If you were here I would tell you something—several somethings—which have happened since you went away; but time and space, as usual, oppose themselves, and I put my treasures away till “we two meet again.” The hope that I shall continue in love towards you, and vice versa, will sustain me till then. If you are thinking soon to go away, and to show your face no more, just inform me, will you? I would have the “long, lingering look,” which you cast behind,—it would be an invaluable addition to my treasures, and “keep your memory green.”
  • Ana Gonzálezhas quoted6 years ago
    lest the deep revelations of a peculiarly shy inner life might so pervade them that in true loyalty to their writer none could be publicly used.
