She composed over one thousand unique lyrics dealing with religion, love, nature, death, and immortality, only seven of which were published during her lifetime. Her verse, noted for its aphoristic style, its wit, its delicate metrical variation, and its bold and startling imagery, has had great influence on twentieth-century poetry.

About sixty of the poems will appear alongside an original pencil drawing created especially for this volume by Ferris Cook.More than one hundred years after her death, Emily Dickinson is an American classic and one of the most influential poets of her era. A Murmur in the Trees will be a marvelous gift for her many devotees—and a magical introduction to her work for anyone who loves poetry.
