About this title


The courtship letters of Emily Dickinson's parents identify issues of vital importance to the poet's parents which influenced Dickinson's subsequent development. In her introduction, Pollak places the letters within the context of nineteenth-century American society and argues that the poet's disturbed relationship with her mother forms part of a larger pattern of troubled same-sex bonding that can be observed in the lives and works of other major artists of the era.<BR><BR>A UNC Press Enduring Edition -- UNC Press Enduring Editions use the latest in digital technology to make available again books from our distinguished backlist that were previously out of print. These editions are published unaltered from the original, and are presented in affordable paperback formats, bringing readers both historical and cultural value.


Students of Emily Dickinson will find a lot of clues as to the subsequent household into which she was born.--<i>Journal of American Studies</i>|""Pollak has done Dickinson scholarship a great favor. Thanks to her research and insightful commentary, the courtship letters emerge as a fertile source for further interpretation of Dickinson's identity, life, and work.""--Polly Longsworth, author of <i>Austin and Mabel: The Amherst Affair and Love Letters of Austin Dickinson and Mabel Loomis Todd</i>
