In the 1850 national census, Dickinson listed her occupation as “keeping house”; the scraps might have kept her as she did so. The discovery of a new Dickinson treasure in the course of an attic cleanout or a basement purge is a perennial, if distant, possibility.

The vertical column of the first panel then becomes a broad horizon, which, when the poet runs out of space, picks up on the third blank panel. Then, in 2013, a handsome facsimile edition, “ The Gorgeous Nothings,” was published by New Directions, followed, this fall, by a compact selected edition, “ Envelope Poems,” the fruits of a collaboration between the Dickinson scholar Marta Werner and the poet and visual artist Jen Bervin. An insightful new volume, The Gorgeous Nothings, edited by Jen Bervin and Marta Werner, also provides a fascinating glimpse of Dickinson by assembling images documenting the poetry she scrawled on repurposed envelopes—envelopes that have themselves been elevated to a new sort of art. Uma poesia fragmentada escrita em envelopes já utilizados que acredito seja uma inspiração de momento, um registo do fugaz sem emenda e hesitante entre uma palavra ou outra.Only ten of her poems were published in her lifetime, all anonymously; publication was, as she put it, as “foreign to my thought, as Firmament to Fin. Although a very prolific poet—and arguably America’s greatest—Emily Dickinson (1830–1886) published fewer than a dozen of her eighteen hundred poems.

Her first collection of poetry was published in 1890 by personal acquaintances Thomas Wentworth Higginson and Mabel Loomis Todd, both of whom heavily edited the content. It is a pleasant fancy to imagine that Dickinson, ever the tortoise in relation to rushing time, knew that, in the end, we would catch up to her. Dickinson’s dashes are ubiquitous in all but the earliest editions of her poems, but fewer editions reproduce her plus signs, which mark an unfinished or provisory line, later to be filled in. D'entrée de jeu, ce sont pas les meilleurs poèmes d'Emily Dickinson (même s'il y a quand même des gros standouts), mais c'est tellement beau et intéressant de voir les scans colorés des manuscrits, écrits sur des lettres repliées pour en faire leur propre enveloppe, avec les hachures qu'impliquent un brouillon et les mots placés entre les lignes pour proposer des alternatives à certains vers des poèmes. After a gregarious girlhood, it was said, Dickinson had gradually become a near-total recluse, known around Amherst as “the myth.As a historian it’s always wonderful to see anything and everything from simple things to simple thoughts, however careless they may seem to us, or unimportant and forgettable to the contemporary maker. La rovescia, la smembra, la apre, la dispiega, la sviscera (…) In queste scritture Emily sembra giocare con il dentro e il fuori, con l’involucro, la custodia, il contenitore: non c’è niente in verità da nascondere, in ciò che sta nell’aperto della parola. Firsthand stories about the Dickinsons were still told in the early nineteen-nineties, when I was a student at Amherst. started these un-conversations with nobody, and so many years after her death, now—in curled script, with their sweet, perfect Ms and half-formed Ys, unpublished and unseen until now—they speak to us. Intensely alive, these envelope poems are charged with a special poignancy—addressed to no one and everyone at once.

The Gorgeous Nothings is a pivotal book: the first full-color publication of Emily Dickinson’s complete envelope writings in facsimile from her visually stunning manuscripts, here in a deluxe,. Many of her poems deal with themes of death and immortality, two recurring topics in letters to her friends. It has been argued that Dickinson refused publication exactly because it was synonymous with print, whose standardizing tendencies she knew would miscarry her precision effects.

Much of Lavinia’s pile ended up at Amherst College, the cornerstone of its special collections; Susan Dickinson’s batch went to Harvard, along with several household treasures that had been preserved at the Evergreens. While the title promises Poems, this somewhat oversells the material: many of the writings are probably better characterized as notes, musings, thoughts, aphorisms, and so on. Most of the scraps remained in Amherst’s archive, curiosities sought out by tenacious Dickinson scholars but unknown to the public at large. It is among the makeshift and fragile manuscripts of Dickinson’s later writings that we find the envelope poems gathered here.

Este é o meu primeiro livro da autora, uma lindíssima edição da SAGUÃO 11, design e composição original adaptada por Rui Miguel Ribeiro e tradução a cargo de Mariana Pinto dos Santos e Rui Pires Cabral. e é possível que a combinação de todos estes elementos sustente a delicadeza que encontro neste maravilhoso livro.You can find support for any of these theories, and many others, in the poems; their quirks, though evened out by her early editors, nevertheless lend credence to the idea that she was a familiar New England stereotype, the flighty, eccentric, proto-spinster daughter. C'était un beau cadeau de ma belle Véro, qui sait que je tripe pas poésie en général, mais qui connait mon amour pour Emily Dickinson que j'ai découverte à travers l'émission Dickinson avec Hailee Steinfeld*.
