Finally,My Emily Dickinson, Susan Howe's singular and unforgettable 1985 creative study, is available as a New Directions paperbook. With exacting rigor and wit, Howe pulls Dickinson free of all the sterile and stuffy belle-of-Amherst cotton wool and shows the poet in touch with elemental forces of nature, and as a prophet in all her radical zealotry and poetic glory.HerEmily Dickinson is a unique American genius, a demon lover of poetryno neurasthenic spider artist. Howe draws into her discussion Browning,Wuthering Heights, the Civil War, "Master," the great Puritan preachers, captivity narratives, Shakespeare, and phantom lovers. As she chases away narrow and reductive feminist readings of the poet, Howe finds instead a radically powerful and true feminism at work in Dickinson, focusing the whole on that heart-stopping poem "My Life had stooda Loaded Gun." A remarkable and passionate poet-on-poet engagement,My Emily Dickinsonfrees a great poet from the fetters of being read as a special female neurotic, and sets her against a fiery open sky where "Perception of an object means loosing and losing it...only Mutability certain."My Emily Dickinsonwon The Before Columbus Foundation Book Award.

Acclaimed poet Susan Howe, winner of the last Bollingen Prize, is the author of the seminal work, My Emily Dickinson.
