The International Reception of Emily Dickinson, Hardback Book

The International Reception of Emily Dickinson Hardback

Edited by Domhnall Mitchell, Maria Stuart

Part of the Continuum Reception Studies series


Emily Dickinson's poetry is known and read worldwide but to date there have been no studies of her reception and influence outside America.

This collection of essays brings together international research on her reception abroad including translations, circulation and the responses of private and professional readers to her poetry in different countries.

The contributors address key translations of individual poems and lyric sequences; Dickinson's influence on other writers, poets and culture more broadly; biographical constructions of Dickinson as a poet; the political cultural and linguistic contexts of translations; and adaptations into other media.

It will appeal to all those interested in the international reception of Dickinson and nineteenth-century American literature more widely.
