    1. If you want to buy a collection of Emily Dickinson's letters, you have two choices. There is no complete collection currently in print, which throws me into a blind rage every time I think about it so let's just move on quickly, shall we – but there are two major editions of selected letters. (There are also minor, cutesy, gifty-looking volumes of letters, often with some poems thrown in for good measure; but never mind those for now.)One of the collections is the first you're shown on . It's [...]

    2. Considering myself less of a fan of poetry (in general) and more a fan of Emily Dickinson, the person, her thoughts and her life, I was completely enraptured by this piece of scholarly work. The editors' thesis was made plain throughout the book -- Emily and Susan were deeply devoted to one another throughout their lives. They spoke of everyday, emotional, spiritual, and literary matters and even collaborated in editing each others' poetry. The editors note that "in spite of the sheer volume of [...]

    3. I took a class in college by the woman who wrote this book, who is, by the way, absolutely infatuated with Emily Dickinson. In taking her Emily Dickinson class, I realized I wasn't so much a fan of Dickinson's poetry.

    4. Emily Dickinson remains an enigma. The pop-culture capsule view is that she was sexless, virginal, reclusive, and roamed her Amherst cemetery like a lonely ghost. Her poetry has always reflected otherwise. Its passion and lyrical propulsion complicate this vision, but scholars argue about who was Dickinson's true muse. Was it nature, the unknown "Master," or Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Massachusetts minister/abolitionist and literary correspondent to Dickinson? Ellen Louis Hart and Martha Nell S [...]

    5. I must admit, poetry is not my strong suit, particularly when it comes to less structures and simplistically worded poetry. Though I had been briefly exposed to Dickinson’s poetry in High School, I had paid almost no attention to it, being largely over my head at the time. But this collection is not the general, without comment or context poetry I have seen before.Often, Susan Dickinson - Emily’s close friend and eventual sister-in-law - was ignored by Dickinson scholars, but luckily, someon [...]

    6. parispress/shop/open-mFor the first time, selections from Emily Dickinson’s 36 year correspondence to her neighbor and sister-in-law, Susan Huntington Dickinson, are compiled in a single volume. Open Me Carefully invites a dramatic new understanding of Emily Dickinson’s life and work, overcoming a century of censorship and misinterpretation. This remarkable correspondence brings to light Susan Huntington Dickinson as the central source of the poet’s passion and inspiration, and as her prim [...]

    7. I gave this four stars since I thought the editor did a tremendous job giving background information, explaining esoteric allusions in Emily's poems and letters and in arranging the poems themselves. It was obvious the editor did her research. However, whether you like the book or not truly depends on how well you like poetry in general and Emily Dickinson's poems in particular. I am new to poetry, but I am giving the genre my best efforts and the benefit of the doubt. There were a few poems tha [...]

    8. Another of those mind-changing literary biographies (like Claire Tomalin's biography of Jane Austen and Louise de Salvo's biography of Virginia Woolf). This book gave me a view of Emily Dickinson that shattered every myth of her that I'd been exposed to. Absolutely lovingly compiled and written by Ellen Louise Hart. The fact that so much of what's in the book are Emily's own words, and some of Susan's, allows readers an intimate look at Emily's inner life. This book sits alongside Tomalin's and [...]

    9. Actually I didn't finish this book. I had looked forward to reading Emily Dickinson's letters, learning more about her. Reading her letters was a tedious task that really didn't help me learn much about her other than she loved her good friend and sister-in-law Susan Huntington Dickinson. As one reviewer put it, the letters are "short, impassioned and not easy to interpret."

    10. she writes beautiful poems, and letters. she is fierce and passionate, and these letters subtly changed my perception of her as one undiscovered to one that was already living in a surfeit of emotion though barely published in her lifetime.

    11. I am a die hard fan of Emily D. I leaf through the collection of poems just for inspiration and sometimes just to remember certain times and feelings I've been through. This book caught my attention because of it's title. What a lovely title I thought. And then I realised what it was ;-)

    12. I am starting to thinking this was a one way correspondence. It is apparent that Emily was really really fond of Susan, to the point where it could cause great pain. But I also wonder, what Susan said in reply.

    13. well wow for not ever publishing any of her poems,loving coorrespondence and her sister-in-law is coolalso

    14. Very enjoyable -- the joy, depth and feeling of Emily Dickinson's letters to her sister-in-law reflect another time -- before email!

    15. What a lovely collection of letters! I think I'd be on cloud nine if Emily Dickinson had sent me just half of the dozens of letters she exchanged with "Susie" over the years. What a friendship.
