Really beautiful reading of familiar lines from ED

Julie Harris read these familiar poems beautifully. Energy, curiosity, passion shine in Emily Dickinson.

Julie Harris's voice is Dickinson's voice.

Julie Harris knows the heart and soul of Emily Dickinson. For the listener, Harris's voice is Dickinson's voice. Surely her reading is the standard that others attempt to reach. The poems are a wonder of poetic artistry in themselves, and Julie Harris's skill is a separate and additional subject of study----more than worthy of a five-star review. However, the book's format doesn't allow one to see the title of any of the 47 poems listed; and I wasn't able to choose my favorites from the list to listen to first or to hear again. I find this to be a serious flaw by the editor and extremely shortsighted. I wonder if this doesn't belie the editor's knowledge and interest in the subject of poetry altogether. Perhaps the publisher will correct this shortcoming..

Read well

Julie Harris reads this so well one can imagine it is Emily Dickinson herself. Unfortunately, there is not enough space between poems, and the number or identifier is not provided.

Beautiful

Brilliant woman with amazing writing. I don’t know if these poems had titles, but even reading them the way they were read was enlightening.

Breathtaking!

Amazing reading of E D's poetry! Julie Harris has such a fantastic voice! She brings the poetry to life. I was so moved by this performance, one of the very best.

recording difficulties

The narration is very clear and well spoken but the recordings of each poem run into each other without a break so you do not know when one poem has ended and another has begun. Many of these poems are on very different topics and need to be listened to individually with a break of a couple of second in-between or the possibility of pausing the recording. This is often not possible as there is sometimes just a microsecond between poems. This detracts very much from my enjoyment of this purchase.
