Emily Dickinson led a quiet life, treasuring her privacy and eventually giving herself over completely to her art: it was in her poetry that she "deliberately decided to live" and there that she is most clearly revealed to us. Yet until now, no biography of this most enigmatic of American poets has attempted to unravel the intricate relationship between the poet's life and her poetry, between the life of her mind and the voice of her poems. Now, Cynthia Griffin Wolff (author of the highly acclaimed A Feast of Words: The Triumph of Edith Wharton) gives us a brilliantly literary biography of Emily Dickinson that reveals this relationship through a rich, comprehensive understanding of Dickinson herself and a new, extraordinarily illuminating reading of her exquisite yet often daunting poems.
