I must admit, kind group, that there was a time, not to long ago, where I
had the idea that all the great literature ever written was written by
European males. However, after reading Ms. Dickinson, she must be rated in
the top five of history. My personal list: William Shakespeare, Charles
Dickins, Oscar Wilde, Henry James, and Ms. Dickinson. If you have a top
five list, let me know. I'd love to read it.

I'm sorry, but Bob from Iraq...you realize that many other poets punctuate
"incorrectly." Although it is not really incorrect, its a different and
writing style, which one of the trademarks emily dickinson is known for.
She wouldn't change the punctuation in her poems even when people said it
was "wrong."

Emily Dickinson knows her staff, i rank her with the likes of Ben Franklin,
RW Emerson, but not Shakespeare.she is the best poetess of the nineteenth
century, her poems are stunning.

i hate emily dickinson's poems. she is very selfish and doesnt punctuate
her poems correctly. she is one of the worst poets of the 19th century.

I think that emily dickenson was one of the many writers who could describe
things in a beautiful way.I am privlaged to read her work and so what if
she was a lesbian I think she was very brave to write the way she did it
must have been hard for her in that age.

I love Emily Dickinson's poems. When i first started reading them i didnt
really understand them. I think that is one of the reasons why i like her.
you have to read them over and over and sometimes just really think about
what she is saying because of the writing style.

I chose Emily Dickinson for a poetry reseach paper, at first just to have a
poet but i found out that i really lke her and that her poems and very
moving. Especially this one. Yes she is into women but hey evveryone has
their preferance. I think thats why i like her, she isnt scared to say to
the word that she is or anything she is bold and daring.

I needed a poem by Emily Dickinson for an English assignment, and although
I've always loved her poems, this has definitely got to be one of my
favorites. It's actually reminded me of some that I've written before, and
I actually think that the ones that most people describe as "creepy" are
the most beutiful.
