Genius. Recluse. War Poet. Woman Poet. By 1930, the 100th anniversary of Dickinson’s birth, critical scholarship, from formalist Allen Tate’s ‘New England Culture and Emily Dickinson’ (1932) to communist poet Genevieve Taggard’s The Life and Mind of Emily Dickinson (1930), set out to claim Dickinson. To what extent were the 1930s battles between high modernism and populist poetics fought, bridged, or played out in the earliest days of Dickinson scholarship? Send 250-300 word abstracts and brief bio to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 30.
