Emily Dickinson`s Letters to the World

Emily Dickinson`s Letters to the World
Winter, Jeanette (Author, Illustrator)

A captivating introduction to Emily Dickinson The poet Emily Dickinson was unknown and mostly unpublished during her lifetime (1830-86). When she died, her sister, Lavinia, discovered the 1,775 poems Emily Dickinson left behind - her "letters to the world." Jeanette Winter tells the story of the discovery of these poems and has selected twenty-one that speak most directly to children, surrounding them with vibrant paintings. With a specifically designed typeface inspired by Emily Dickinson's handwriting, this small book, which is about the size of some of the paper on which Emily wrote, is a gem.
