The Life of Emily Dickinson

Life of Emily Dickinson
By Richard B. Sewall

Winner of the National Book Award, this detailed account of Emily Dickinson's life was considered a monumental contribution to Dickinson studies when it was first published in 1974.  Chapters about individual family members and friends as well as Dickinson herself provide insight into a life that the poet, as the biographer asserts, made a "delicate business" for posthumous audiences to piece together.  Sewall's work was the first to include details about the affair between Austin Dickinson, the poet's brother, and Mabel Loomis Todd, a posthumous editor of Dickinson's work.

Paperback, 924 pages, (c) 1998 (originally published in two-volume hardcover in 1974).
