Though known principally as the miniaturist in American poetry, Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) produced a remarkably wide body of work ? some concentrating on acute observations and some on bons mots. Full of wit and sensitivity, she generally appears in anthologies but this generous collection shows that she is a poet to be taken seriously.

Teresa Gallagher gives Emily Dickinson a New England voice that succeeds in conveying the poet's distinctive duality: her gentle, mystical other-worldliness underscored by a resolute strength... Does the 'door ajar' shut her out or invite her in? Is the 'realm of you' Heaven or some paradise of earthly love? Even though recurrent themes are death and self-denial, the mood is airy and buoyant, like the angel's wings Dickinson imagines she wears. - Rachel Redford, The Sunday Times
