Almost unknown during her life, Emily Dickinson lived her adult years secluded in her family’s Amherst Massachusetts home. In her corner bedroom Dickinson wrote nearly two thousand poems, many set in regions far beyond her experience; distant volcanoes, tempestuous seas, heaven. The power of her vision, internal and vast, matches the spirit of ‘voyaging’ which The Melville Press celebrates. Beautifully bound, this editon includes three 8” x 32” full-color archival prints by Catherine Kanner which unfold to introduce each of the sections; Earth, Sea and Air.
