Emily Dickinson A collection of the finest work of one of America's best-loved poets. Despite Dickinson's prolific writing, fewer than a dozen of her poems were published during her lifetime. Critics now consider Dickinson to be a major American poet. Read by Julie Harris.
Emily Dickinson Eccentric and reclusive, Emily Dickinson wrote poetry that reflects the richness of her interior world and the peculiar beauty of her inner vision. During her lifetime, her poetry was considered too unusual to be publishable, but after her death in 1885, Dickinson achieved posthumous recognition as one of the great poetic voices of the 19th century. This collection, read by Alexandra O'Karma, includes commentary and some of Dickinson's letters as well as 75 of her over 900 poems, including such favorites as "Because I Could Not Stop for Death," "'Hope' Is the Thing with Feathers," "There Is No Frigate like a Book," and "There's a Certain Slant of Light."
Emily Dickinson With all of its freshness and genius, this collection of over 200 titles is indeed a "letter to the world". Life, love, nature, time, death and eternity are explored with keen insight and beautiful imagery.
Emily Dickinson Poems by Emily Dickinson is a compilation of the poetry of Emily Dickinson in three different series, each composed of the following subjects: Life, Love, Nature, Time, and Eternity.
The notoriously reclusive New England poet broke all the rules of Victorian-era poetry to create a new, uniquely American style. Despite the fact that the majority of the poems recited here were never published in her lifetime, Dickinson remains one of the most influential voices in American literature.
Percy Bysshe Shelley, William Butler Yeats, Henry Longfellow, Emily Dickinson & John Keats For many of us Autumn, or as the Americans would say; Fall is the season of mixed emotions. Summer's long days are replaced by a chill in the air. The colours on the trees and fields ripen to warmer hues and the harvest is brought safely home. Yet with this bounty there is the knowledge that Nature is turning her attention to the harder, colder Winter month's ahead. Our collection of poems amplifies this balance between the loss of summer and the gain of the harvest with wonderful poems by such notables as Shelley, Yeats, Keats, Sheehan, Emily Dickinson and Longfellow.
This collection is read for you by Ghizela Rowe and Gideon Wagner. We hope you've enjoyed this collection which is one of four in the Seasons collection.
Emily Dickinson, E. E. Cummings, William Wordsworth, Billy Collins, Allen Ginsberg & Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Why a poetry album? Easy answer: I love poetry. I love reading it. I love memorizing it. I love hearing great actors recite it. As the poet Mark Strand wrote, “Ink runs from the corners of my mouth / There is no happiness like mine / I have been eating poetry.” In the past, when I was full from eating, I have had the audacity to set poetry to music. But, on this audiobook, you will hear the music of the poems. Poetry unadorned. Words. Because in truth, great poetry needs nothing but a great actor, a voice as eloquent and expressive as the poem itself, to lift the poem off the page and into the heart.
I have never done a project that has elicited so much enthusiasm. From the actors arriving at the studio who thanked me for inviting them to participate, "Are you kidding?" I’d say, "Thank you!" to the engineers who would say, "I never got this stuff, but these guys make it so beautiful." This audiobook has been a joy from beginning to end, a true labor of love. And whenever I heard my stomach rumbling during the production process, I always knew I could find something delicious to eat in the studio. Mmmm. Yeats? That hits the spot.
Emily Dickinson, William Wordsworth, G. K. Chesterton, W. B. Yeats, John Donne, Daniel Sheehan, Ben Jonson & Rudyard Kipling Christmas, they say, comes but once a year. In these days, it seems to also last for much of that year - but this volume is not just for Christmas!
For the religious amongst us, this annual celebration of the Birth of Christ must seem bitter sweet: it's acknowledgment by billions of people, countered by the pervasive spread of material possessions translating the event to little more than a sales pitch for material wares. Most religions celebrate their founders, but Christianity seems somehow to have lost possession of one of its key rituals in an ever more secular West. The spread of globalisation seems to have hindered rather than helped the true meaning of the festival. Children today are much more interested in what presents they might receive than any spiritual message. As parents too, most of us buy into this and indulge our offspring rather than instil the underlying themes and aims of the festival's meaning common to us all.
In this collection, we rely on the words and wisdom of such fine poets as John Milton, Emily Dickinson, Sir Walter Scott, Daniel Sheehan, William Wordsworth, Robert Louis Stevenson, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and a whole host of others to absorb us in a Christmas time of hope and togetherness. The experiences and memories they share with us speak of a time, of a world that did have a common purpose and an ambition to share good fortune with everyone.
Emily Dickinson Emily Elizabeth Dickinson was born in 1830 in Amherst Massachusetts. Rightly regarded as a major American poet, her life was sheltered, introverted, and reclusive. Despite writing over 1800 poems, only a dozen or so were published during her lifetime. Her structures and wordings are at times difficult to get to grips with, though recurring themes of religion and death certainly shadow many of her works. At her death is 1886, it is likely her work might have been lost had it not been for a publication by her sister. Indeed it was only in the 1950s that a complete and unedited collection of her works was published. In the ensuing half century she has gradually climbed into the pantheon of Greats.

Emily Dickinson Emily Dickinson today has gained her deserved place alongside Walt Whitman as one of the two greatest American poets of the 19th century. Beginning always with particulars of personal experience, her poems encompass life and death, love and longing, joyfulness and sorrow. With sparse, precise language, she conveyed a penetrating vision of the natural world and an acute understanding of the most profound human truths.
The poems included in this collection are grouped by three time periods, 1890, 1891, and 1896, and by the subjects of life, love, nature, and time and eternity.

Emily Dickinson As private as she was eccentric, Emily Dickinson published only a handful of poems in her lifetime. Most of her work, much of which dealt with themes of death and immortality, was published posthumously, to mixed reviews. But it would be her unconventional poetic style, which was most criticized early on, that would ultimately gain her recognition as one of the greatest American poets of all time.
Here, a lovely sampling of the poems of Emily Dickinson is brought to your ears by Patricia Rodriguez, Richard Mitchely, Tim Graham, Gideon Wagner, and Ghizela Rowe.

Emily Dickinson "Sillabe del mattino" è una raccolta di brevi poesie di Emily Dickison nella versione in italiano di Roberto Malini.
Per Emily Dickinson, la vocazione del poeta nasceva dal desiderio di migliorare l'essenza stessa dell'umano indagando oltre i confini del divino, alla ricerca di una purezza sempre più perfetta. Non a caso, paragonava la sua arte alla lotta di Giacobbe con l'angelo.
Emily passò quasi tutta la sua vita nella casa natìa, che abbandonava solo per visite ai parenti. Vestiva di bianco come un angelo e coglieva l'infinito nei cicli della natura e nei piccoli istanti della vita quotidiana, nei quali si fissavano anche i macro avvenimenti della società in cui la poetessa viveva, sconvolta dalla Guerra di Secessione.
Le brevi liriche, scritte nella sua camera, rappresentavano il suo progetto di comprendere il senso della vita e della Storia attraverso lo strumento dell'immaginazione. Quando Emily morì, all'età di 56 anni, la sorella trovò in un cassetto le sua opera: 1775 poesie scritte su foglietti ripiegati e cuciti con ago e filo.
"Sillabe del mattino" è un audiolibro della collana LibriVivi Recital. Il potere puro della voce, attraverso letture senza musica, che interpretano poesia, monologhi teatrali e brevi novelle.

Emily Dickinson Emily Dickinson was born into a prominent New England family. Sociable as a child, she grew increasingly withdrawn, and in later years she became known as a recluse. Though her poems often accompanied gifts to family and close friends, only seven were published during her lifetime. Just after her death in 1886, her sister discovered 1,775 poems bound in small packets; 50 of the most penetrating and insightful of those poems are collected here. Listeners will find them perfect for meditation, relaxation, or simply for the sheer pleasure of listening to what has become known as some of the best English language poetry every written.
