From Publishers Weekly
The Poetry for Young People series attempts to straddle the school and trade markets with these two volumes about America's best-known New England poets, but the results are uneven. Frost is superb, the poems introduced in a tone that is informative but not pedantic. Robert Frost's best work is organized into seasonal categories; an italicized gloss for each poem unobtrusively explains references and highlights themes. Sorensen's sketchy watercolors ground each poem in Frost's world of pastures, rose pogonias and yellow woods. Bolin's biographical interpretation of Emily Dickinson, on the other hand, is both coy and condescending. The reader is told, for example, that "Emily may have seemed to some like a real 'nobody' [but] inside she knew she was somebody special." Chung's illustrations combine Holly Hobbie-style children with trite ornamentation; a rainbow springs from the center of a lily to accompany "A word is dead" while a pea pod containing heart-shaped peas illustrates other verse. Each book includes a brief biography of the poet and a short index. Ages 10-up.

From School Library Journal
Grade 9 Up?These lavishly designed and illustrated books combine poetry, archival photographs, and illustrations on smooth, satiny stock with well-written, interesting biographical sketches. The information is enhanced by the way the text is harmoniously juxtaposed with beautiful, sepia-toned photos and drawings of people and places from the poets' lives. Cummings is also illustrated by assemblage figures with Paul Klee-like faces and anxious, quizzical expressions that are in tune with Cummings's words. The illustrations for Dickinson are large, rather static pastel drawings of flowers and plants. The poetry, on the other hand, some of which is very difficult, correlates nicely with the factual details; for example, "I'm Nobody!" appears opposite a description of Dickinson's reclusiveness in her mid-30s. Because of the complexity of many of the poems in both volumes, these titles would be appropriate as introductions to their subjects for high school students.?Sue Norris, Rye Free Reading Room,

This is a book for everyone, if you don't already know, Emily Dickinson is one of the explorers of human nature, and every other form of nature.
Finally, my favourite poem is Revery.
