Amazon Kindle 0 editions. Audible 0 editions. CD Audiobook 0 editions. Project Gutenberg 0 editions. Google Books — Loading Their trysts would be in the middle of the afternoon with the poet right upstairs. She wished Sue dead, and when that didn't occur, she hoped to become pregnant with a little Dickinson. No luck in that department, either although not for lack of trying and calculating fertile times of the month!
In she [Lavinia] retrieved the manuscripts she had placed in The Evergreens and turned them over to Mabel Todd, who proceeded to translate hundreds of poems. She had to turn a pointer manually to each letter, and then stamp the letter capitals only on to paper through an inked rubber sheet.
It was laborious, exhausting. It is a fight that continued even after adversaries Mabel Todd and Sue Dickinson died. This wasn't a breezy read, but it was one that I enjoyed.

As I mentioned earlier, I didn't know anything about this whole Dickinson family feud and that was interesting and entertaining to me. It's a mistake to spot Dickinson in all her poems; the real challenge is to find our selves. She demands a reciprocal response, a complementary act of introspection. For the poem to work fully we have to complete it with our own thoughts and feelings.
An enthralling story of creative genius, filled with illicit passion and betrayal, Lives Like Loaded Guns is sure to cause a stir among Dickinson's many devoted readers and scholars. Eliot and Charlotte Bronte. She is a senior research fellow at St. Hilda's College in Oxford, England. Lyndall Gordon expands the conventional profile of poet Emily Dickinson as a delicate, reclusive spinster and introduces a more lively, passionate, and worldly woman. Wanda McCaddon uses her subtle British accent and crisp delivery to quickly establish this persona.
She expertly captures Dickinson's acerbic wit from notes left to family and friends and successfully delivers the spiritual and vulnerable side often found in her poems. Although it includes some poetic analysis, this book focuses on Dickinson's personal life, which, as the title suggests, involved a surprising amount of controversy and drama.
Gordon and McCaddon present a treat for those who enjoy Dickinson's poems as well as for those who simply enjoy a good story well told. Convert currency. Add to Basket.
