Emily Dickinson by Helen McNeil( Book )

25 editions published between 1986 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Emily Dickinson remained largely unacknowledged until the publication of her Complete Poems in 1955. In this book, published in the centenary year of Dickinson's death, McNeil brilliantly assesses the grounds for and the meaning of her belated recognition. She argues that not only was Dickinson's reclusiveness a strategy for asking forbidden questions, but the absence of a readership during her lifetime gave her poetry its unique freedom and stature. In an era when women were encouraged to write badly or sentimentally, Dickinson's isolation permitted her to decide for herself what poetry could be about and what kind of language it could use. In this study of her life and work, Helen McNeil both celebrates her individuality and shows how the English poetic tradition is altered by an understanding of Dickinson's accomplishments.

Emily Dickinson, the "Belle of Amherst," stayed close to home, finding inspiration in the small world around her. Often writing more than a poem a day-although few were published during her lifetime-she perfected a highly personal, condensed and still very modern style. Among the most famous, included here, are: Success is Counted Sweetest, I Taste a Liquor Never Brewed, and This Is My letter to the World

Selected poems by Emily Dickinson( Book )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Emily Dickinson (1830-86) was born in Amherst, Massachusetts, the daughter of Edward Dickinson, a lawyer and politician. Despite receiving a good education, she returned to Amherst, where she spent the rest of her life, at one time writing more than a poem a day. Her refusal to compromise her highly condensed expression, which meant that only a tiny fraction of her work was published in her lifetime, makes her seem startlingly modern today."--Page 4 of cover
