Emily Dickinson: A Collection of Critical Essays. Twentieth Century Views Series.
Sewall, Richard B., Ed.
One of a series of works aimed at presenting contemporary critical opinion on major authors, this collection includes essays by Richard B. Sewall, Conrad Aiken, Allen Tate, Yvor Winters, George F. Whicher, Henry W. Wells, Donald E. Thackrey, Thomas H. Johnson, R. P. Blackmur, John Crowe Ransom, Austin Warren, James Reeves, Richard Wilbur, Louise Bogan, Charles R. Anderson, Archibald MacLeish, and David J. M. Higgins--all dealing with the biography and literary work of Emily Dickinson. Designed for use by both literary critics and secondary and college teachers of English, this work would also be of value to undergraduate and graduate students of literature. The essays discuss Emily Dickinson's life, American humor, romantic sensibility, the communication of the word, poetry as art, the poetry and prose of Emily Dickinson, and Dickinson as a mystical poet. A chronology of important dates in Dickinson's life, a brief set of biographical notes on the contributors to this collection, and a bibliography of works on Dickinson complete the volume. (LL)
