Emily Dickinson’s Poems: As She Preserved Them is a major new edition of Dickinson’s verse intended for the scholar, student, and general reader. This is the only edition of Dickinson’s complete poems to distinguish in easy visual form the approximately 1,100 poems she took pains to copy carefully onto folded sheets in fair hand—arguably to preserve them for posterity—from the poems she kept in rougher form or apparently did not retain. Readers can see, and determine for themselves, the extent to which a poem is resolved or fluid. Soon there will be a link on the Emily Dickinson Archive (www.edickinson.org ) so that users may see the manuscripts in fascicle order and unbound sheets.
