Fifty Poems of Emily Dickinson


Emily Dickinson was a prolific poet, writing nearly 1,800 known pieces. Only 7 of these, however, were published before her death in 1886. This 50-poem collection includes such selections as "Forbidden Fruit," "I Had a Guinea Golden," and "Love's Baptism." There are several pieces about one of her favorite themes, the sea, which she describes as "an everywhere of silver." As is the case with most poetry, Dickinson's poems come alive when read aloud. These works--sometimes witty, sometimes sorrowful--are read by a talented group of actresses, including Stephanie Beacham, Glenda Jackson, Sharon Stone, and Meryl Streep. Listen to Glenda Jackson read Emily Dickinson's "I Died for Beauty."The numerous voices reading here  stress the varied emotions that exist or can be read into Dickinson's work: from anger to complacency to the supersweet voice one uses for nursery rhymes.
