Poems by Emily DickinsonConsidered by many to be the spiritual mother of American poetry, Emily Dickinson (1830–1886) was one of the most prolific and innovative poets of her era. Well-known for her reclusive personal life in Amherst, Massachusetts, her distinctively short lines, and eccentric approach to punctuation and capitalization, she completed over seventeen hundred poems in her short life. Though fewer than a dozen of her poems were actually published during her lifetime, she is still one of the most widely read poets in the English language. Over one hundred of her best poems are collected here.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Hermione comes back for classes and is bummed they haven't made more progress on Flamel. The three never got anything out of the library on him, and they're pretty busy when classes start again. What really crowds Harry's schedule is Quidditch: they've got lots of extra practices preparing for the big game, and they have to be on their toes because Snape will be the referee.

Hagrid explains Harry's history to him: When he was a baby, the Dark wizard, Lord Voldemort, attacked and killed his parents in an attempt to kill Harry; but the only mark on Harry was a mysterious lightning-bolt scar on his forehead.
