This book explores the many implications of her admiration for the Bard.\" \"Paraic Finnerty clarifies the essential role that Shakespeare had in Dickinson\'s life by locating her allusions to his writings within a nineteenth-century American context and by treating reading as a practice that is shaped, to a large extent, by culture. In the process, he throws new light on Shakespeare\'s multifaceted presence in Dickinson\'s world: in education, theater, newspapers, public lectures, reading clubs, and literary periodicals.\" \"Through analysis of letters, journals, diaries, records, periodicals, newspapers, and marginalia, Finnerty juxtaposes Dickinson\'s engagement with Shakespeare with the responses of her contemporaries. Her Shakespeare emerges as an immoral dramatist and highly moral poet; a highbrow symbol of class and cultivation and a lowbrow popular entertainer; an impetus behind the emerging American theater criticism and an English author threatening American creativity; a writer culturally approved for women and yet one whose authority women often appropriated to critique their culture. Such a context allows the explication of Dickinson\'s specific references to Shakespeare and further conjecture about how she most likely read him.\"--Jacket.<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
