    Emily is the Best of the Best! ! ! !

    Did Dan Reynolds below really offer tips to Emily Dickinson? Dan, she dead bro. More than just that, she is (arguably) the greatest American poet to have ever lived... I'm sure that she would appreciate the pointers. Oh, I'm sorry man - that was just an easy shot. But listen, you should read her biography. I think you'll find her one of the loveliest creatures to have ever lived. It appears that Eric below gets it - During her entire life critics and poetical societies kept her out, saying things a lot like you said... After she died she became the most widely published American poet ever... Guess they were wrong. I wrote a poem about such tragedy, Lost Indifference of a Learned Critic. I had no plans until I saw these remarks. Hope you have a moment to read it. Balash, you are right - that is exactly what she did - along with a few others.

    Emily Dickinson gave a new meaning to poetry. I admire her for her verses shakes my soul.

    The semi-antique colonial English language used by Emily causes the experienced reader to slow his pace while reading her poetry. I love her style. She is laconic and she is spiritual and feminine.

    unnoticed in your day -
    behind your wall or in your garden fair -
    your bloom - unwanted -
    falling to us to enjoy

    Her language is mesmerizing, haunting, irresistibly charming- a pure genius.

    You show some promise, but the archaic language lets you down. Try to read some good contemporary poets and expand your thoughts without the restriction of form.

    classic poems! like her use of vocabulary

Best Poem of Emily Dickinson

Hope Is The Thing With Feathers

'Hope' is the thing with feathers—
That perches in the soul—
And sings the tune without the words—
And never stops—at all—

And sweetest—in the Gale—is heard—
And sore must be the storm—
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm—

I've heard it in the chillest land—
And on the strangest Sea—
Yet, never, in Extremity,
It asked a crumb—of Me.

Read the full of Hope Is The Thing With Feathers

I Died For Beauty

I died for beauty, but was scarce
Adjusted in the tomb,
When one who died for truth was lain
In an adjoining room.

He questioned softly why I failed?
"For beauty," I replied.
"And I for truth - the two are one;
We brethren are," he said.
