Emily Dickinson As a Second Language : Demystifying the Poetry - by Greg Mattingly (Paperback)
About this item
? Emily Dickinson (1830–1886) wrote in 19th century American English and referenced long-vanished cultural contexts. A “private poet,” she created her own vocabulary, and many of her poems have quite specific local and personal connections. Twenty-first century readers may find her poetry elusive and challenging. Promoting a richer appreciation of Dickinson’s work for a modern audience, this book explores unfamiliar aspects of her language and her world.
