"Avevo una ghinea d'oro e la persi nella sabbia. E nonostante la somma fosse modesta e di denaro ce ne fosse nel paese, tuttavia aveva un tale valore ai miei timidi occhi che quando non riuscii più a trovarla mi sedetti a sospirare". Emily Dickinson.
le più belle poesie di Emily Dickinson in una piccola raccolta originale.
Emily Elizabeth Dickinson was an American poet. Born in Amherst, Massachusetts, to a successful family with strong community ties, she lived a mostly introverted and reclusive life. Dickinson left no formal statement of her aesthetic intentions and, because of the variety of her themes, her work does not fit conveniently into any one genre. She has been regarded, alongside Emerson (whose poems Dickinson admired), as a Transcendentalist. Dickinson's poetry frequently uses humor, puns, irony and satire. Emily Dickinson is now considered a powerful and persistent figure in American culture. She has become widely acknowledged as an innovative, pre-modernist poet. Twentieth-century critic Harold Bloom has placed her alongside Walt Whitman, Wallace Stevens, Robert Frost, T. S. Eliot, and Hart Crane as a major American poet, and among the thirty greatest Western Writers of all time.
Emily Dickinson fue una mujer inteligente, rebelde y culta que, en su encierro voluntario en la habitación de su casa en Amherst, construyó una de las obras más sólidas de la literatura universal. Como señala Juan Marqués en la presentación, sus poemas «además de ser escritos, en principio, exclusivamente para la inmensa minoría de sí misma, fueron, a un tiempo, complicadísimos y simples, alegres y tristes, transparentes y enigmáticos. Son poemas que acompañan y ayudan a vivir a quien los lee, que enseñan a observar mejor, que obligan a ser más compasivo».
