Emily Dickinson (1830–86).  Complete Poems.  1924.


FOR the convenience of readers familiar with previous editions of Emily Dickinson’s poems the original four divisions have here been retained, each now including all the poems of its own group in the three volumes of the series.   1
  The names given to many of the poems by former editors have been dropped, leaving them as they were found in manuscript,—not entitled; but the old landmarks of “Life, Nature, Love, Time and Eternity” remain at suggestion of the publisher, for whose kind consideration I make sincere acknowledgement, as also for the invaluable assistance of Alfred Leete Hampson.
