This collection situates Emily Dickinson within the rapidly evolving intellectual culture of her time. Essays clarify the ideas at stake in Dickinson's poems by reading them in the context of one or more relevant philosophers, exploring the degree to which her work anticipated important trends in twentieth-century thought.
