“What Oberhaus has achieved will force a rereading not only of the fascicles but of the entire canon of Emily Dickinson’s poetry. . . . Seldom has a scholar come to such a project so well equipped theologically and with such wide and precise knowledge of the Bible. Oberhaus’s reading of the poems is sensitive and sure. She did not come to the task with preconceived notions. What she found was there all the time, waiting for the right reader. And what she found is central.”
—Richard B. Sewall
“Oberhaus’s purpose is to reveal Emily Dickinson’s intended and achieved structure in these forty sequential booklets and to demonstrate that the final fascicle is the account of an Ignatian meditation, a detailed narrative of individual mystical Christian conversion and experience. . . . This is a major, iconoclastic work; it can be expected to provoke lively reactions from leading Dickinson scholars, all of whom have denied that Dickinson ever attempted or achieved a structured interrelationship among her lyrics and that she ever professed sustained religious conviction.”
—Jack L. Capps
“In Emily Dickinson’s Fascicles: Method & Meaning, Dorothy Oberhaus pays Dickinson an even higher compliment—she shows the scriptural power of the poems in the fortieth fascicle. According to Arthur Henry King, the greatest works of literature are those that came closest to approximating the power of language and truth in the scriptures. Oberhaus helps us experience power in the language and truth of this great American poet.”
—Cynthia L Hallen, Literature and Belief
