Emily Dickinson's Vision
Return to Emily Dickinson's Vision|
"In his excellent debut book, James R. Guthrie atgues that much of Dickinson's way of understanding and relating to the world, and hence her writing, resulted from a chronic optical weakness for which she was treated in Boston in 1864 and 1865."
"Emily Dickinson's Vision is a powerful and persuasive book. In particular, the chapter on her changing attitutde to publication is a timely and intelligent contribution to the contemporary debate about her attitude to print." Emily Dickinson International Society Bulletin
"The argument of Emily Dickinson's Vision would have made a suggestive article of an identifiably psycho-biographic kind; its monocular view does not reward expansion to book length. If there is one thing Emily Dickinson's poetry does not have, it is tunnel vision. Too much explicitness puts the book's readings in jeopardy of naivete, and one wishes that the author's style did not suggest quite such confident access to the poet's views and intentions." - American Studies American Studies
