Reviews and Endorsements

Morag Harris gives Dickinson the close comparative attention she requires, and proposes innovative ways of dating and interpreting her work by establishing its stylistic history. This study is a thrilling and canny confrontation with one of the most popular and secretive poets of all times, and will be indispensable for all those who wish to explore the Dickinson labyrinth.
Massimo Bacigalupo, University of Genoa

Harris' study suggests how to read Dickinson, not merely what we are reading, in the sense of a message or 'position'. It is itself notably pleasurable to read.
Professor Drummond Bone

Morag Harris' book is groundbreaking in its rich and nuanced account of Emily Dickinson's prose and its relationship to a tradition of romantic ideas.
Ian Gregson, Lecturer, Dept of English, UWB Bangor

Morag Harris' book reminds us that intention and creativity eschew the possibility that we can have any expectations concerning the really new. Her book is itself a creative act in which language is revealed in all its world-shaping and transforming potential to alter critical value-orientations and structures of perception.
Paul J. Thibault, University of Venice

Morag Harris was born in London in 1954. She was educated at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford University, and the University of Urbino, Italy, and is currently researching a doctoral thesis concerning the links in aesthetic theory and practice between European Romanticism and American poetry, at the University of Wales, Bangor. She has worked in publishing in England and Italy, and has been teaching English at the University of Bologna, Italy since 1980, where she participates in the activities of the Institute of Interdisciplinary Studies in romanticism, and of various journals connected to the University, in particular La Quetione Romantica. She is the author of several essays on Romanticism and on Emily Dickinson and the Bronte's, and co-editor of a book on the teaching of poetry, Poetry for You. She writes poetry herself, some of which has been published, and much of which has been read during public readings or on radio programs. She has three children aged 18, 14 and 10, and currently lives between Bologna and Oxford.
