The heart asks pleasure first,And then, excuse from pain;And then, those little anodynesThat deaden suffering;And then, to go to sleep;And then, if it should beThe will of its Inquisitor,The liberty to die.Generally considered among the greatest American poets, Emily Dickinson has been read, studied, and admired by generations of literature students and poetry lovers. This modestly priced edition presents over 100 of her best-known and most-loved poems, reprinted from authoritative early editions. Unflinchingly honest, psychologically penetrating, and technically adventurous, the poems include such favourites as "The Chariot," "I taste a liquor never brewed," "The Snake," ""I'm nobody, who are you?" "A Book," "There's a certain slant of light," "Hope,"" and many more.

Emily Dickinson

Upon her death, Dickinson's family discovered 40 handbound volumes of her poems, which she had assembled herself.
