Reprinted for the first time in almost a century, The Single Hound is the first volume of Emily Dickinsons collected poems.
Deceptive in its simplicity, Emily Dickinsons verse is a monumental testament to her poetic genius. Encompassing the entire gamut of emotion and feeling, her poems are remarkable for their honesty, often in the face of severe trials and tribulations. Extraordinary, too, is her experimental use of structure and grammar, a device that has led her to be hailed as one of the most creative and individual poets of the 19th century.
Emily Dickinson (183086) is one of Americas leading experimental poets; her work has been the inspiration for a host of feminist writers.
From the Publisher
Since its U.S. launch in 2003, Hesperus Press has enjoyed a growing reputation for its inspired publishing program of short classic works. Written by illustrious authors, and often unjustly neglected or simply little known in the English-speaking world, these works have been made accessible via a completely fresh editorial approach and new translations.
In addition to the Hesperus Classics, Hesperus Press recently introduced two new series: Modern Voices, drawing from the very best of 20th-century literature, and Hesperus Contemporary, showcasing the work of leading contemporary writers.
About the Author
Emily Dickinson was born December 10, 1830, in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Although one of America's most acclaimed poets, the bulk of her work was not published until well after her death in 1886. The few poems published in her lifetime were not received with any great fanfare. After her death, Dickinson's sister Lavinia found over 1,700 poems Emily had written and stashed away in a drawer-the accumulation of a life's obsession with words. Critics have agreed that Dickinson's poetry was well ahead of its time. Today she is considered one of the best poets of the English language. Except for a year spent at Mount Holyoke Female Seminary in South Hadley, Dickinson spent her entire life in the family home in Amherst, Massachusetts. She never married and began to withdraw from society, eventually becoming a recluse. Dickinson's poetry engages the reader and requires his or her participation. Full of highly charged metaphors, her free verse and choice of words are best understood when read aloud. Dickinson's punctuation and capitalization, not orthodox by Victorian standards and called "spasmodic" by her critics, give greater emphasis to her meanings
