I must modify my previous comment: "Poems," published in 1896, did entitle
the poem "Griefs," and it did omit the fourth stanza. All ten stanzas,
including the fourth stanza, were printed in "The New England Quarterly,"
XX, (1947). These citations are from Johnson's notes. Perhaps there is a
basis for some genuine controversy, I accept Johnson's versions, in the
absence of any subsequent evidence to the contrary.

Leigh, I do not know what is the basis for your criticism of the poem as

The fourth stanzs is included in the Thomas Johnson edition of the complete

Many editions of Emily Dickinson's poems were published before a reliable,
scholarly edition was published.

"Griefs" is not the title of the poem. Emily Dickinson did not give titles
to her poems. They are usually identified by their first lines, "I measure
every Grief I meet" in this case.

This is not the Emily Dickinson poem "Griefs." I have the complete work of
hers and this poem is so off from what I have read. The forth stanza isn't
even in the poem. I don't know who wrote this or why they changed it, but
I thought that I should warn all those out there that this is not the
original poem in it's true form.

This is one of my favorite poems of all time. It gives everyone a picture
of her sorrow...and it shows how she wonders if everyone else hurts as she
does, or if she is the only one. I love how at the end of the poem she
gives a word of encouragement to the others who hurt as she does.
