9780060887919: Essential Dickinson (Essential Poets)

From the introduction by Joyce Carol Oates:

Between them, our great visionary poets of the American nineteenth century, Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman, have come to represent the extreme, idiosyncratic poles of the American psyche....

Dickinson never shied away from the great subjects of human suffering, loss, death, even madness, but her perspective was intensely private; like Rainer Maria Rilke and Gerard Manley Hopkins, she is the great poet of inwardness, of the indefinable region of the soul in which we are, in a sense, all alone.

About the Author:

Known as “The Myth of Amherst” for her withdrawal from society while still a young women, Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) had an inner life that was deeply emotional and intense. She know rapture and despair, pondered the wonder of God and the meaning of death. She broke tradition and was criticized for her seminal experiments with unorthodox phrasing, rhyme and broken meter, within concise verse forms, thus becoming an innovator and forerunner of modern poets.

From AudioFile:

Throughout her illustrious acting career Julie Harris has found inspiration in historical characters--none more than Emily Dickinson. This collection of 47 Dickinson letters and poems was recorded in 1960 by a 35-year-old Harris, who was about the same age as the reclusive poet when she was at her creative peak. One can hear the affinity Harris had for the material in her calm, alluring, and focused performance. In the familiar lyrical rhythms of works like "Because I Could Not Stop for Death" and "I Never Lost as Much but Twice" Harris gives us an Emily Dickinson who embodies what "The Belle of Amherst" will always be--an essential and altogether original American voice.
