Emily Dickinson Reviews

"Palgrave Macmillan's 'Literary Lives' series exists not so much to answer intriguing biographical questions as to establish the link between the art and the life that gives rise to these questions. Wagner-Martin, with acclaimed biographies of Sylvia Plath and Zelda Fitzgerald to her credit, does a superb job here of teasing out the implications of that connection." The Independent

"Reliable, accessible, and compact, this is a valuable book. Summing up: Highly recommended. All readers." CHOICE
