About the Author

Alexandra Socarides is Assistant Professor of English at the University of Missouri.


"This is by far the best book on Dickinson I have read in a long time. It is an important and timely contribution to Dickinson studies, to the history of the book, to the history of reading, and a crucial contribution to the emerging field of nineteenth-century historical poetics."--Virginia Jackson, author of Dickinson's Misery: A Theory of Lyric Reading "Socarides' close attention to Dickinson's compositional practices is so interesting that it's astonishing that it's taken this long for such a book to appear-although the demanding nature of her primary archival work may explain why it has not. Dickinson Unbound sets a high standard for rigor and care of inference in Dickinson manuscript studies." --Mary Loeffelholz, author of From School to Salon: Reading Nineteenth-Century American Women's Poetry "Characterized by rigorous scholarship, Socarides's invaluable inquiry into method sets a precedent for Dickinson studies...Highly recommended." --Choice "[O]ffers an exciting and insightful intervention into Dickinson studies while also suggesting new avenues for approaching women's poetry of the nineteenth century." --Legacy
