Solitary Prowess: The Transcendentalist Poetry of Emily Dickinson
Cultural Writing. Poetry. RC 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. The poems are grouped to show how they embody given archetypes. Many of the poems included will come as surprises to those who know Dickinson only from anthologies, while others will appear in an entirely new light.
