Ever before possible glimpse into the process of one of our most important poetsThe book presents all the envelope writings 52 reproduced life size in full color both front and back with an accompanying transcription to aid in the reading allowing us to enjoy t. This is a wonderful amazing book Emily Dickinson wrote her poems on various types of paper including the backs of used opened out envelopes This book collects all of her works composed on envelopes or postal wrappers over fifty in all They are presented in actual size front and back and the facing page of each envelope provides a transcription The book has a foreword by Susan Howe an Introduction Studies in Scale by Jen Bervin and a concluding essay Itineraries of Escape Emily Dickinson s Envelope Poems by Marta Werner Both are excellent One of the many interesting points made in the introductory material is that Emily played with the actual shape of the envelope as she developed her thoughts Susan Howe says that the poems should be viewed as visual productions Thus the volume has a uniue visual index the poems are arranged by address columns parallel divisions multi directional text diagonally written text cancellederased text and envelopes with variant readings When I first read Dickinson s poems I used the complete edition by Johnson I had no idea that in a great many cases I was reading a poem that had been edited by Johnson who arbitrarily made his own choices of variant readings presented by the poet When you read the poems in this book you will see how often Dickinson presents a very complex emotional poetic landscape I will illustrate this with the first envelope poem in the bookHere is the reading from Johnson of poem 1123A great Hope fellYou heard no noiseThe Ruin was withinOh cunning wreck that told no taleAnd let no Witness inThe mind was built for mighty FreightFor dread occasion plannedHow often foundering at SeaOstensibly on LandA not admitting of the woundUntil it grew so wideThat all my Life had entered itAnd there were troughs besideA closing of the simple lidThat opened to the sunUntil the tender CarpenterPerpetual nail it down This is beautiful and it certainly encapsulates something of the experience undergone by the poet But the envelope MS has the following significant variants none of which are crossed outL2 noise crashL3 Ruin havocdamageL13 troughs spaceroomL14 lid GateBut the most significant of all occurs in the penultimate line tender is given with the variant sovereign but written in the margin up the side of the paper is unsuspecting carpenters Carpenter clearly refers to Christ and sovereign certainly has a different connotation than tender But why did she use unsuspecting in the margin Is the implication that Jesus doesn t actually know what is happening Why the plural Is it a slip or are there many Carpenters depending on the person and the sufferingIt would seem that Johnson chose the version that had comfort The MS I think powerfully conveys anguish the thin ice of faith over despairIt is worth mentioning that if one wishes to read of the original handwritten poems they are available as free downloads in digital format from Amherst College without transcriptions This book however is worth its relatively low cost and as Susan Howe remarks This edition itself is a work of Art
