Publisher Note

“I have been an avid Emily Dickinson fan for almost 20 years. Her prodigious imagination, her complex and idiosyncratic mastery of language, her ability to connect the natural world and human experience with an elevated and precise mental awareness, all thrill me to my core. She is both a model of what it means to be an artist, how to live an artistic life, and an exemplar of what is possible at the summit of human artistic expression. For me, the impact of her poetry is a feeling that she herself described, ‘physically as if the top my head were taken off…’ I consider that sensation — of one’s head exploding — about as close as a human can come to divine…
“The works presented in this book are more or less influenced by her poems. In some cases the connection is very direct (e.g. ‘Western Mystery’ and ‘She sweeps with many-colored Brooms’), and in other cases the connection is more atmospheric. I trust Emily Dickinson would forgive the presumptuousness of the pairings.”
