Whitman & Dickinson : A Colloquy, Paperback / softback Book

Whitman & Dickinson : A Colloquy Paperback / softback

Edited by Eric Athenot, Cristanne Miller

Part of the Iowa Whitman Series series

Description

Whitman & Dickinson is the first collection to bring together original essays by European and North American scholars directly linking the poetry and ideas of Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson.

The essays present intersections between these great figures across several fields of study, rehearsing well-established topics from new perspectives, opening entirely new areas of investigation, and providing new information about Whitman's and Dickinson's lives, work, and reception. Essays included in this book cover the topics of mentoring influence on each poet, religion, the Civil War, phenomenology, the environment, humor, poetic structures of language, and Whitman's and Dickinson's twentieth- and twenty-first-century reception-including prolonged engagement with Adrienne Rich's response to this "strange uncoupled couple" of poets who stand at the beginning of an American national poetic.

Contributors Include: Marina Camboni, Andrew Dorkin, Vincent Dussol, Betsy Erkkila, Ed Folsom, Christine Gerhardt, Jay Grossman, Jennifer Leader, Marianne Noble, Cecile Roudeau, Shira Wolosky.
