Staff Reviews


This reading edition is culled from the three volume The Poems of Emily Dickinson: Varorium Edition which contains every known version of each of the poems.  In this reading edition R.W. Franklin has selected the latest version of each poem and has retained Dickinson’s idiosyncratic (and wonderful) spellings, punctuation and capitalizations.  Franklin is the expert on Dickinson’s manuscripts so this reading edition is the new authoritative volume of her poems.  Compare the versions of the poem “Dare you see a soul at the White Heat” in Franklin’s edition of the poems with that in Thomas Johnson’s edition.  You’ll notice a slight but significant difference!
