9780393316568: The World of Emily Dickinson

A beautiful, visual biography of America's greatest woman poet, containing over 275 photographs and illustrations.

Emily Dickinson left an enduring literary legacy―nearly 2,000 poems―yet she was so intensely private that her life is sometimes seen as one of solitary devotion to the muse. The portraits, engravings, maps, and other illustrations in The World of Emily Dickinson attest to a much broader life than is commonly thought. Polly Longsworth's graceful introductory essay portrays a young woman of unusual intelligence and wit meeting the world on her own terms, engaging with people, ideas, natural phenomena, and her nineteenth-century culture, while choosing to keep her distance from the public eye. The pictures and captions build on that essay, exploring Dickinson's immediate surroundings, the Dickinson family's active and influential public life, as well as close friends and relatives, the growing town of Amherst, and the intellectual life of the time. Over 275 photographs and illustrations

About the Author:

Polly Longsworth is the author of Austin and Mabel: The Amherst Affair and Love Letters of Austin Dickinson and Mabel Loomis Todd. She is currently working on a biography of Emily Dickinson. She has been involved in an exhibit of work inspired by Dickinson opening in late March at the Mead Museum at Amherst College and lives in Royalston, Massachusetts.

From Library Journal:

The first of its kind, this collection of photographs, drawings, and maps visually documents the life of the noted poet. It depicts all of the important people and places in Dickinson's life--Amherst, her family and friends--and includes a chronology of events as well. In her short introductory essay, literary biographer Longsworth ( Austin and Mabel , Farrar, 1984) suggests that the poet may have been more gregarious than is usually assumed, citing the large circle of friends and relatives with whom she corresponded. As an introduction to Dickinson's life and work, this picture book falls short; commentary is limited and examples of her poetry are few. It serves more appropriately to round out the collections of Dickinson enthusiasts.
