Publisher's Summary

Emily Elizabeth Dickinson was born in 1830 in Amherst Massachusetts. Rightly regarded as a major American poet, her life was sheltered, introverted, and reclusive. Despite writing over 1800 poems, only a dozen or so were published during her lifetime. Her structures and wordings are at times difficult to get to grips with, though recurring themes of religion and death certainly shadow many of her works. At her death is 1886, it is likely her work might have been lost had it not been for a publication by her sister. Indeed it was only in the 1950s that a complete and unedited collection of her works was published. In the ensuing half century she has gradually climbed into the pantheon of Greats.

Great Content & Format but...

Here's the Jist-

Although all the actors were off the chain-major props-
the technical delivery just wasn't there for me.

For starters, We're not given any sort of set list whatsoever. I've had to research & write mine own, which leads me to believe that production must have just "flown by the seat of its pants."

For us listeners, however, we are forced to suffer a bit. Having to bounce from one random poem to the next without any guide is exhausting. Furthermore, there is no let up or pauses between any of the 55 chapters. So......... 😨😥😖😤😩 Oy Gavolt!

I'd prefer a slightly slower pace over all actually. Time just isn't a concern for this kind of a platform- you know? It's Dickinson, not Nascar.

Sound Quality is ++++
Actors ++++
Production ++
Design/Layout +++

Enjoy & Many Thanks!
