Although many critics have commented on the poetic quality of Dickinsons letters, William Shurr is the first to draw fully developed poems from them. In this remarkable volume, he presents nearly 500 new poems that he and his associates excavated from her correspondence, thereby expanding the canon of Dickinsons known poems by almost one-third and making a remarkable addition to the study of American literature. Here are new riddles and epigrams, as well as longer lyrics that have never been seen as poems before.

While Shurr has reformatted passages from the letters as poetry, a practice Dickinson herself occasionally followed, no words, punctuation, or spellings have been changed. Shurr points out that these new verses have much in common with Dickinsons well-known poems: they have her typical punctuation (especially the characteristic dashes and capitalizations)- they use her preferred hymn or ballad meters- and they continue her search for new and unusual rhymes.

Most of all, these poems continue Dickinsons remarkable experiments in extending the boundaries of poetry and human sensibility.
