In this unusual biography, the product of seven year's intensive study, John Cody, a practicing psychiatrist, offers a fresh and persuasive interpretation of what made Emily Dickinson the person and poet she came to be. By approaching her poems and letters-a rich though cryptic record of her feelings and fantasies-as psychological documents, eh is able to trace the undercurrents that permeate her poetry and to integrate the external signs of psychic disturbance, such as her reclusion, into a total view of her emotional development. Emily Dickinson, according to Dr. Cody, experienced her mother as inaccessible, ineffectual, and self-abnegating, and thus suffered a twofold deprivation: an unappeasable longing for maternal affection and the absence of an adequate feminine model on which to pattern her own development as a woman.
