Harvard University Press has partnered with De Gruyter to make available for sale worldwide virtually all in-copyright HUP books that had become unavailable since their original publication. The 2,800 titles in the “e-ditions” program can be purchased individually as PDF eBooks or as hardcover reprint (“print-on-demand”) editions via the “Available from De Gruyter” link above. They are also available to institutions in ten separate subject-area packages that reflect the entire spectrum of the Press’s catalog. More about the E-ditions Program »
Emily Dickinson’s voluntary seclusion has often been mistakenly equated with intellectual isolation. Many have maintained that she was in no one’s poetic debt, but to limit her horizons to the Dickinson home is to underestimate grossly the capacity of her imagination. Jack L. Capps demonstrates that as a working poet she was much influenced by the books she read, particularly the King James Bible, the works of the Metaphysical poets, and Burns, Emerson, and the Brownings. An annotated index of Miss Dickinson’s reading, pointing out its relation to her poems, is appended to the text.
