Emily Dickinson's Letters to the World
(Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR) March 19, 2002)
, 1st edition
A captivating introduction to Emily Dickinson
The poet Emily Dickinson was unknown and mostly unpublished during her lifetime (1830–86). When she died, her sister, Lavinia, discovered the 1,775 poems Emily Dickinson left behind – her “letters to the world.” Jeanette Winter tells the story of the discovery of these poems and has selected twenty-one that speak most directly to children, surrounding them with vibrant paintings.
With a specifically designed typeface inspired by Emily Dickinson’s handwriting, this small book, which is about the size of some of the paper on which Emily wrote, is a gem.
