The Single Hound, Paperback / softback Book

The Single Hound Paperback / softback

Part of the 101 Pages series - Alma Classics series

Description

When Emily Dickinson died in 1886, having published only a tiny selection of her verse anonymously in journals and newspapers, she left behind a chest containing almost 1,800 poems written on notebooks and loose sheets.

Her family members, starting with her sister Lavinia, began editing and compiling them for publication, and one of the most celebrated collections, The Single Hound, was prepared by her niece Martha Dickinson Bianchi and published in 1914.

This volume, containing some of Dickinson's most original and poignant pieces, helped cement her reputation as one of America's most important poets.

Sparse and experimental, yet accessible and intimate, the compositions included in The Single Hound provide an ideal introduction to Dickinson's genius.
