Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
For anyone with more than a passing interest in Emily Dickinson's literary debut. this book is essential. Of course, the author is loyal to her mother, Mabel Loomis Todd, and tells the story from her mother's point of view. You may require additional reading to get the full picture, although Bingham does try to be fair to Susan Dickinson who was the first person Lavinia Dickinson approached to edit Emily's poems. To get a broader perspective, Gordon's recent book, "Lives Like Loaded Guns" offers a far more critical perspective on Mabel Loomis Todd than does her loyal daughter. I would say the book is dated.
