Gr 11 Up--This series title begins with a brief biography that places the poet in the context of her times. It is followed by eight scholarly essays by renowned authors and critics such as Joyce Carol Oates, Adrienne Rich, and Allen Tate. They explore Dickinson's puritan heritage, her eccentric lifestyle, and her rank among the world's great poets. The next section consists of poetic analysis, and the final chapter is made up of eight essays that offer insights into "Dickinson's Poetic Themes." While this is not an introductory work, the volume will be a valuable aid for students seeking critical analyses of the poet's work. The scholars flatly contradict one another, which can be thought-provoking for informed readers, but may be frustrating and confusing for neophytes.
