    First edition, limited to 350 hand-numbered copies

     

    Emily Dickinson, unrecognized in her own time, is known posthumously for her innovative use of form and syntax. Dickinson's poetry was heavily influenced by the Metaphysical poets of seventeenth-century England, as well as her reading of the Book of Revelation and her upbringing in a Puritan New England town, which encouraged a Calvinist, orthodox, and conservative approach to Christianity. While she was extremely prolific as a poet and regularly enclosed poems in letters to friends, she was not publicly recognized during her lifetime. Upon her death, Dickinson's family discovered forty handbound volumes of nearly 1,800 poems, or "fascicles" as they are sometimes called. Dickinson assembled these booklets by folding and sewing five or six sheets of stationery paper and copying what seem to be final versions of poems. 

    This collection of Emily Dickinson, edited by Claudio Rocchetti, comprises fifty poems, eight letters, and seven fragments.
