R.C. Allen puts Emily Dickinson's work in an entirely new perspective, looking less at the historical personage named Emily Dickinson than at the cosmic self she cherished, "ED." An archetypal study of transcendentalism as it appears in her poems, this book consists of a general introduction to transcendentalism as it occurs in many world literatures and a close reading of numerous Dickinson poems.
