Staff Reviews


In 2013, New Directions published The Gorgeous Nothings, an exquisite collector’s edition of Emily Dickinson’s envelope poems in rich facsimile. These handwritten poems and musings, scribbled on the backs of envelopes, are now available in a curated gift format, still beautifully reproduced with facing-page text translation but now irresistibly affordable. With pieces like “But are not all Facts Dreams as soon as we put them behind us” captured, this is a surefire way to appreciate and inspire.

— Melinda

Description


Full-color facsimiles are accompanied by Marta L. Werner and Jen Bervin's pioneering transcriptions of Dickinson's handwriting. Their transcriptions allow us to read the texts, while the facsimiles let us see exactly what Dickinson wrote (the variant words, crossings-out, dashes, directional fields, spaces, columns, and overlapping planes).
