Emily Dickinson wrote more than one thousand poems, several hundred of which remain of critical interest and debate. Harold Bloom suggests Dickinson presents the most authentic cognitive difficulties of 19th and 20th century poetry.

This title, Emily Dickinson, part of Chelsea House Publishers Modern Critical Views series, examines the major works of Emily Dickinson through full-length critical essays by expert literary critics. In addition, this title features a short biography on Emily Dickinson, a chronology of the author's life, and an introductory essay written by Harold Bloom, Sterling Professor of the Humanities, Yale University.

From School Library Journal:

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.
