Six charming essays sensitively explore the sources of Emily Dickinson’s poetic utterance. The author describes the ideas and forces that influenced the adolescent girl, the crisis in the life of the poetess, and the emotional aspects of her experience after 1865. The second part of the book deals with friends who played an important part in Emily Dickinson’s development.
