Emily Dickinson's Rich Conversation: Poetry, Philosophy, Science is a comprehensive account of Emily Dickinson's aesthetic and intellectual life. Through her letters and poems, Richard E. Brantley identifies Dickinson's dialogue with John Locke's rational empiricism, Charles Darwin's evolutionary biology, Wordsworth's 'natural methodism,' Ralph Waldo Emerson's idealism, and European and American intellectual traditions. Contrary to the image of the isolated poet, this ambitious study reveals Dickinson's agile mind developing through conversation with a community of contemporaries.

About the Author:

Richard E. Brantley is Alumni Professor of English, Emeritus, at the University of Florida, USA. His publications explore how the empirical and evangelical language of experience complicates the tough and tender tone of Anglo-American Romanticism. These works include: Wordsworth's "Natural Methodism," Experience and Faith: The Late-Romantic Imagination of Emily Dickinson, and Locke, Wesley, and the Method of English Romanticism, which won the Conference on Christianity and Literature Award.

Review:

"Brantley demonstrates triumphantly, through his generous and engaging consideration of Dickinson's range of personae and of her innumerable interlocutors, living or dead - in an oeuvre tuned in both to Anglo-American poetry and to Anglo-American philosophy and science - that what he calls her 'life-writing' exhibits essentially an 'allegiance to dialogue'. . . Richard Brantley is a superbly gifted critic and (if one may use that term) a master of Dickinson's oeuvre." - Richard Gravil, The Wordsworth Circle

"This book gives us a newly riveting Dickinson, a capacious, complex, and supple poet who could out-do Darwin in staring at the earth's chaos but who could also, at the core of the turbulence, channel Wordsworth's undying sense that order would prevail: not the rigid orders of the logicians or the philosophers, but the more aesthetic structures of the heart, always attuned, even when saddest, to beauty, which, as we know from Keats, can only exist if it's already dying. Remarkably, given his past achievements as a historian of ideas and a literary critic, this is Brantley's best book yet." - Review 19

"Highly recommended." - CHOICE
