    Dickson is one of the finest poets of her own times.have you noticed how short some of her poems seem to be yet with a very deep meaning? I enjoy her poetry because of its simplicity.. (Report) Reply

    Let those who would carp at a very fine poem do so. There's much to praise in Dickinson's neat and concise little poem. If only some of the coomments posted on this site were half as concise and near as neat, we could praise circumference without relief! (Report) Reply

    Straw says he likes Dickinson, yet in another review he called her 'insane.' And what is wrong with a theological poem? Obviously if you disregard all poems because of this quality you will eliminate most of the worlds great work. My conclusion, Straw gas no idea what he is doing or says. (Report) Reply
