Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312036507, Hardcover)An exploration of the realities behind the stereotypes of reclusiveness that have obscured understanding of Emily Dickinson and her poetry. Lease demonstrates that her poems are eloquent and rebellious responses to questions about human existence which remain as vital now as they were in her time. This study relates the poetry to Dickinson's lifelong religious quest, and to her relationships with Charles Wadsworth and Thomas Wentworth Higginson. It identifies the work by other poets and authors which she viewed as sacred texts. Her work is put into the context of the war that transformed her life and the spiritualist movement that affected it.
