Martha Dickinson Bianchi, Emily Dickinson Face to FaceRegular price $18.00
- Dimensions: 5” x 8.5”, 112 pages, paperback
- Written from the intimate perspective of Emily Dickinson’s niece and next door neighbor, Face to Face paints a portrait of the elusive poetess as she has never been portrayed by any other biographer.
- A colorful and constant figure in Martha’s childhood memories, “Aunt Emily stood for indulgence” to her nieces and nephews, offering herself as a confidante and sounding board for young adult problems (when asked what Martha should wear to a party, “Her vote was for my highest-heeled red slippers.”) She was an observant and involved onlooker who simultaneously withdrew from the wider world, retreating into beloved, through often misunderstood, solitude. “No one,” Emily told her niece, “could ever punish a Dickinson by shutting her up alone.”
- Unpublished for most of the twentieth century, this book has been reprinted with a charming new cover by McNally Editions. A beautiful gift for any bibliophile. Multiples available.
