Présentation de l'éditeur :

EMILY DICKINSON: WILD NIGHTS: SELECTED POEMS selected and introduced by Miriam Chalk One of the most extraordinary poets of any era, American poetess Emily Dickinson wrote a huge amount of poetry (nearly 1800 poems). This book ranges from her early work to the late pieces, and features many of Dickinson’s most famous pieces. This new edition includes many new poems. Emily Dickinson's poetry is among the strangest, the most compelling and the most direct in world literature. There is nothing else quite like it. She writes in short lyrics, often only eight lines long, often in regular quatrains, but often in irregular lines consisting of two half-lines joined in the middle by a dash (such as: ''Tis Honour - though I die' in "Had I presumed to hope"). Her subjects appear to be the traditional ones of poetry, blocked in with capital letters: God, Love, Hope, Time, Nature, the Sea, the Sun, the World, Childhood, the Past, and so on. Yet what exactly is Dickinson discussing? Who is the 'I', the 'Thee', the 'we' and the 'you' in her poetry? This is where things become much more ambiguous. Dickinson is very clear at times in her poetry, until one considers deeper exactly what she is saying - but this ambiguity is one of the hallmarks and the delights of her art. As an example of Emily Dickinson's idiosyncratic use of punctuation, particularly the dash, this is from "Behind me - dips Eternity": Behind me - dips Eternity - Before Me - Immortality - Myself - the Term   Death but the Drift of Eastern Gray, Dissolving into Dawn away, Before the West -  No other poet has made such a distinctive use of the dash which does for full stops, commas, colons and semi-colons. The dash serves to break up the flow of Dickinson's verse, but it also connects together a series of thoughts. The only other poet I can think of who uses the dash so profusely is Arthur Rimbaud. As with Rimbaud, Dickinson's use of the dash hints at a rush of information, one phrase piling on top of the other. It is a rush of data which's sometimes found in mystical writings. As with Rimbaud, Dickinson's poetry sometimes looks as if she were very excited, as if the experience in the poetry is threatening to erupt out of the form of the verse. Some poets went for using  punctuation at all (or very little), which we find in poets such as Ezra Pound or Allen Ginsberg. With Dickinson, though, there is no (or not much) difficulty in how she is trying to speak. There is ambiguity, but it is not the same as the ambiguities in Joyce or Stein. Dickinson also employs a profusion of exclamation marks - as many (if not more) than the equally exuberant Romantic poets. There is a state that Dickinson's poetic persona gets into, that requires the use of exclamation marks to communicate her exultation. Includes an introduction, bibliography, notes. ISBN 9781861713636. 124 pages. Also available in hardback. www.crmoon.com

Biographie de l'auteur :

EMILY DICKINSON Emily Elizabeth Dickinson (December 10, 1830 - May 15, 1886) was born in Amherst, MA. Much of her later life was led in privacy, in the family home in Massachusetts. For some, she was a recluse, famous among locals for wearing white clothes, seldom travelled, preferred correspondence to meeting people in the flesh, and was known for talking to visitors thru a door. She wrote nearly 1800 poems, but only a few were published during her lifetime.
