The Emily Sonnets: The Life of Emily Dickinson

In The Emily Sonnets, Jane Yolen's beautiful sonnets and insightful biographical notes spotlight Emily Dickinson's schooling, seclusion, and the slant rhymes for which she became famous, while Gary Kelley's captivating artwork portrays the poet's 19th-century Massachusetts world, including her family, faith, and fears.
