Poetry written by the gifted recluse Emily Dickinson has remained fresh and enigmatic for longer than works by her male Transcendentalist counterparts. Here Mary Loeffelholz reads Dickinson's poetry and career in the double context of nineteenth-century literary tradition and twentieth-century feminist literary theory.
"Mary Loeffelholz has written a book that actually performs what it promises. . . . It illuminates our understanding of Emily Dickinson with readings both elegant and useful, and as importantly suggests modified direction for feminist-psychoanalytic theory."
-- Diana Hume George, author of Oedipus Anne: The Poetry of Anne Sexton

Industry Reviews

"The most striking difference in comparison to other feminist readings of Dickinson consists in the fact that her poems are read against texts by both male and female writers like Emerson, Wordsworth, and Keats as well as Barrett Browning and the Brontes." -- Signs. "A rich synthesis of some of the more fruitful lines of inquiry in recent Dickinson criticism: deconstructionist, feminist, historicist, Lacananian." -- Choice
