Emily Dickinson and the Language of American Modernism

A book length study entitled Emily Dickinson and the Language of American Modernism which will focus on the language of Emily Dickinson as that of a poet of unique voice and radical innovation who had a crucial role in the language revolution that changed poetry in America and opened the way into the modernist era. Study will also present a revisionist view of her debt to Emerson, and will consider her experience as one of the first to dive into the wreck of a female life.
