“Could you tell me how to grow up—or is it something that cannot be passed on—like witchcraft?”
— Emily Dickinson

In a world of affections as close as it is tender and explosive, Emily Dickinson contemplates and judges the world, rejects it in eruptions of lava or sublimates it until she reveals it in a blinding light. Love letters, ironic or poetic, from a woman who chose the risk of thought and called it ecstasy.

The author

Removed from the world during her lifetime, Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) wrote nearly 1800 poems, of which only a handful were published during her lifetime. In rebellion against her social milieu, the “recluse queen” concentrated in her poetry her tumultuous interior life and the power of her thought in a concise, vibrant and disconcerting writing. Her letters to her friends and loves are also poetic treasures. An immense interior journey, without leaving the horizon of a room.

The edition

Letters chosen and presented by Marco Federici Solari.
