Description

She was quiet and fiercely private. She was bold and fiercely creative. And it wasn't until after her death that the world came to know her genius. In The Emily Sonnets, Jane Yolen's beautiful sonnets and insightful biographical notes spotlight Emily Dickinson's schooling, seclusion, and the slant rhymes for which she became famous, while Gary Kelley's captivating artwork portrays the poet's 19th-century Massachusetts world, including her family, faith, and fears.
