Emily Dickinson's Collected Poems by Emily Dickinson

Emily Dickinson's Collected Poems are known for their simple language, unusual punctuation, and off-rhymes, as well as their frank discussions of depression and death. The poems explore the idea of mortality with nuance; death is not always a bad thing, but often something to be contemplated logically and even welcomed-not always out of despair, but rather as a necessary inevitability. The works often contain references to nature, religion, and philosophical musings.
