My first exposure to Emily Dickinson was in a college course on nature writers, and I did not like her poems at all. However, I decided to buy this tiny book and give her a second chance. These small books are a Barnes & Noble special; they are about the size of a wallet. I’m glad I decided to give Dickinson a second chance because I have enjoyed many of the poems in this book. It just goes to show, first impressions can be deceiving.
