    Emily Dickinson was born into a prominent New England family. Sociable as a child, she grew increasingly withdrawn. Only seven poems were published during her lifetime. Just after her death in 1886, her sister discovered 1,775 poems bound in small packets; 50 of the most penetrating and insightful of those poems are collected here. Listeners will find them perfect for meditation, relaxation, or simply for the sheer pleasure of listening to what has become known as some of the best English language poetry every written.
