9780061124211: Essential Dickinson CD

Known as "The Myth of Amherst" for her withdrawal from society while still a young woman, Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) had an inner life that was deeply emotional and intense. She knew rapture and despair, pondered the wonder of God and the meaning of death. She broke tradition and was criticized for her seminal experiments with unorthodox phrasing, rhyme and broken meter, within concise verse forms, thus becoming an innovator and forerunner of modern poets.

This collection of Emily Dickinson's poems is interspersed with her luminous and fascinating letters, all read by Julie Harris, who received a Tony® Award for her portrayal of Emily Dickinson in "The Belle of Amherst."

From the Back Cover:

Emily Dickinson saw fewer than twenty of her 1,775 poems published during her lifetime: when she died in 1886, her obscurity as a poet was nearly total. Now widely recognized as one of the great American poets of the nineteenth century, she is one of a handful from any period whose enduring stature in the world of letters is matched by the loyal affection of generation after generation of readers. In this distinguished addition to The Essential Poets series, Joyce Carol Oates presents a "personal - yet not private" collection of Dickinson favorites, selecting from relatively obscure works as well as better-known poems to illuminate Dickinson's often unacknowledged range. Oates takes care to introduce us to the poet's subversive playfulness; to her rebellious nature and radical aesthetic; to her gender-bending personae and surprisingly wicked humor. At the heart of this collection, of course, stands the work that made Dickinson's reputation as one of America's great visionary poets: an artist who has written with stoic control and astonishing lucidity about the soul's darkest, most terrifying hours.

From AudioFile:

Throughout her illustrious acting career Julie Harris has found inspiration in historical characters--none more than Emily Dickinson. This collection of 47 Dickinson letters and poems was recorded in 1960 by a 35-year-old Harris, who was about the same age as the reclusive poet when she was at her creative peak. One can hear the affinity Harris had for the material in her calm, alluring, and focused performance. In the familiar lyrical rhythms of works like "Because I Could Not Stop for Death" and "I Never Lost as Much but Twice" Harris gives us an Emily Dickinson who embodies what "The Belle of Amherst" will always be--an essential and altogether original American voice.
