Nice complement to the Sewall biography. Higginson is an amazing figure in his own right, even without the relationship with Dickinson. I especially loved the description of Emily's funeral. ( )

Engrossing. Brenda has a way of making non-fiction come alive. She is masterful in combining Dickinson's poetry and Higginson's prose in an intriguing and thoughtful manner. ( )
