Summary

The focus of this title, first published in 1989, begins with Dickinson’s poems themselves and the ways in which we read them. There are three readings for each of the six poems under consideration that are both complementary and provocative. The selected poems show Dickinson speaking of herself in increasingly wider relationships – to love, the outside world, death and eternity – and are grouped together to reveal her overlapping attitudes and feelings. Other topics discussed range from general epistemological and critical considerations to the poet’s self-identification and the process of reading her poetry as a feminist critic. This title will be of interest to students of literature.
