Inflections of the pen : dash and voice in Emily Dickinson by Paul Crumbley( Book )
8 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 468 libraries worldwide
Emily Dickinson's life and art have fascinated - and perplexed - the poet's admirers for more than a century. One of the most hotly debated elements of Dickinson's poetry has been her unconventional use of punctuation. Now, in Inflections of the Pen: Dash and Voice in Emily Dickinson, Paul Crumbley unravels many of these stylistic mysteries in his careful examination of manuscript versions of her poems - including selections from the fascicles, Dickinson's own hand-bound gatherings of her poems - and of Dickinson's letters. Crumbley argues that the dash is the key to deciphering the poet's complex experiments with poetic voice. From the time of Dickinson's first editors, Mabel Loomis Todd and Thomas Wentworth Higginson, standard versions of her poetry have tended to normalize the poems. Designated as either em- or en-dashes in print by all but a few recent editors, Dickinson's dash marks in the holograph versions vary tremendously in length, height, and angle. According to Crumbley, these varied dashes suggest subtle gradations of inflection and syntactic disjuction. The printed poems give the impression of a unified voice, whereas the dashes that appear in the manuscripts disrupt conventional thought patterns and suggest multiple voices

"In this volume, a number of senior and emerging Dickinson scholars raise their disparate voices with a particular set of theoretical premises, each selecting specific fascicles for close inspection. The result is the first practical, balanced, common ground for studying Dickinson's poetry in her own context."
Body my house : May Swenson's work and life by Paul Crumbley( Book )
8 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 203 libraries worldwide
The first collection of critical essays on May Swenson and her literary universe, Body My House initiates an academic conversation about an unquestionably major poet of the middle and late twentienth century. Between the 1950s and the 1980s, May Swenson produced eleven volumes of poetry, received many major awards, was elected chancellor of the Academy of American Poets, and was acclaimed by writers in virtually every school of American poetry. Essays here address the breadth of Swenson's literary corpus and offer varied scholarly approaches to it. They reference Swenson manuscripts--poems, letters, diaries, and other prose--some of which have not been widely available before. Chapters focus on Swenson's work as a nature writer; the literary and social contexts of her writing; her national and international acclaim; her work as a translator; associations with other poets and writers (Bishop, Moore, and others); her creative process; and her profound explorations of gender and sexuality. The first full volume of scholarship on May Swenson, Body My House suggest an ambitious agenda for further work. Contributors include Mark Doty, Gudrun Grabher, Cynthia Hogue, Suzann Juhasz, R.R. Knudson, Alicia Ostriker,Martha Nell Smith, Michael Spooner, Paul Swenson, and Kirstin Hotelling Zona
