Summary
"Three preeminent scholars of Dickinson's life and work have contributed essays that explore the history and legacy of the Homestead and the Evergreens. Polly Longsworth, who wrote the definitive account of Austin's affair with Mabel Loomis Todd, reveals some results of her recent researches - including a new recognition that Dickinson's anxiety problems were a real and integral condition of her existence. Barton Levi St. Armand shares the previously untold inside stories of Mary Hampson, the last resident of the Evergreens, and of the lives connected with the house over the last century. Christopher Benfey offers an insightful appreciation of Liebling's photographs and the light they shed on Dickinson and her work." "The heart of this book is the one hundred-plus photographs through which Jerome Liebling expands our understanding of Emily Dickinson's world and life."--Jacket
