Emily Dickinson as a Second Language : Demystifying the Poetry Paperback / softback
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.
