Emily Dickinson-Daugt Prophecyby Beth MacLay Doriani
In this book, Beth Maclay Doriani looks at the ways Emily Dickinson addressed these questions in the context of patriarchal nineteenth-century New England. She explores some of the central strategies Dickinson used to claim both poetic and religious authority and to join the ranks of the self-proclaimed prophets of her day--literary figures like Emerson, Thoreau, and Whitman, as well as a host of preachers and other popular orators.
