"Three preeminent scholars of Dickinson's life and work have contributed essays that explore the history and legacy of the Homestead and the Evergreens. Polly Longsworth, who wrote the definitive account of Austin's affair with Mabel Loomis Todd, reveals some results of her recent researches - including a new recognition that Dickinson's anxiety problems were a real and integral condition of her existence. Barton Levi St. Armand shares the previously untold inside stories of Mary Hampson, the last resident of the Evergreens, and of the lives connected with the house over the last century. Christopher Benfey offers an insightful appreciation of Liebling's photographs and the light they shed on Dickinson and her work." "The heart of this book is the one hundred-plus photographs through which Jerome Liebling expands our understanding of Emily Dickinson's world and life."--BOOK JACKET
Loaded gun life, and death, and Dickinson ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A filmmaker who is stumped but captivated by Emily Dickinson's poetry searches for 'flashes of insight' into the elusive poet beyond those offered by his lively but traditional interviews with experts such as actress Julie Harris and U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins. So he turns to shrinks, a sensitive, a stand-up comic, a rock band, even a fan with an Emily tattoo across his back. Still unsatisfied, he holds auditions in which dozens of actresses recite poems and improvise Dickinsonian answers to questions about God, and Death, and Love. Rising above all the speculation and spectacle are varied readings of over 50 Dickinson poems."--Container
