Approximately 100 letters are published here for the first time, including almost all of the letters to Jane Humphrey and to Mrs. J. Howard Sweetser. The new material is even more extensive than it might appear, for many of the letters previously published were censored when first made public. This three-volume set, designed to accompany Mr. Johnson's previously published work, the widely acclaimed Poems of Emily Dickinson, assembles all of Emily Dickinson's letters (with the exception of letters presumably destroyed). The editors present the letters chronologically, with manuscript location, previous publication data, and notes for each letter, together with a general introduction, and biographical notes on recipients of letters. The notes for each letter identify persons and events mentioned, and the source of literary allusions and quotations is given wherever known. Since Emily Dickinson rarely dated her letters after 1850, the dates for the most part must be conjectured from careful study of handwriting changes and from internal evidence of the letters. Of the 1,150 letters and prose fragments included in this outstanding edition, the text of about 800 derives from Dickinson autographs.

The Letters of Emily Lady Tennyson

The Letters of Emily Lady Tennyson

The letters in this volume, virtually all of them personal letters to close friends and relatives, cover nearly fifty years of Emily Tennyson's life, from shortly before her marriage right up to the week of her death. These letters tell the reader much about the Tennysons' acquaintances and their guests at Farringford and Aldworth, many of them among the literary and political luminaries of the day. But more importantly they comment on Tennyson himself and on daily life in the Tennyson household. Written with no thought of posterity, Lady Tennyson's letters reveal the domestic Tennyson, just as he was, for the first time. They reveal crucial information about Tennyson's reading and his intellectual and spiritual preoccupations; and they will contribute in time to a better understanding of the complexities and subtleties of Tennyson's verse. Of course, these letters also provide a running account of the life of Emily Tennyson herself, and they give a valid impression of the sort of woman she really was. Her common sense and her erudition, her tolerance and her boundless kindness, her appreciation and command of music and other arts, her social and political awareness, her persuasive effect on Tennyson's poetry, and her shaping influence on the lives of the people who knew her best--all these aspects of Emily Tennyson are displayed in her correspondence.

Emily Chubbick Judson (1817-1854) is a well-known name, but for more reasons than most know. She was a nationally known writer (her pseudonym was Fanny Forrester) with pieces appearing alongside those by Edgar Allan Poe and Walt Whitman, and she walked in literary company second to none. She wrote children's books, essays, and stories. Then, in 1845, she met Adoniram Judson and they married in 1846. Their work in Burma made them famous as Baptist missionaries. After his death in 1850, she returned to the States in 1851 and spent the last years of her life writing and publishing her essays and poetry, and helping to produce a biography of her husband. During her fascinating life, she was a prolific letter writer. This is the first volume of her life and works, with volumes 2 through 6 containing all of her letters. As these volumes are presented, readers and scholars in the future will find in this material encouragement for sharing more about the Judson lives, and the wonderful work they accomplished. Their humanity, their faith, and their deep commitment to their call should prove to be instructive and inspirational to each of our lives. Volume 1 consists of footnotes, time lines, and biographies that have all emerged out of the project itself. For example, many of Emily Chubbic Judson's letters are undated. To put them in sequence, the events, places, and people within the letters were identified so they could be understood and interpreted correctly; this resulted in a 'Cast of Characters' and 'Places and Events'. The 'Publication Time' puts Chubbick's writings in chronological order. The footnotes clarify and lend context to the names and faces, as well as the stories and the events within the letters, and the connectiveness between the letters. Volume 2 consists of the early letters Emily Chubbick Judson from the years 1836 through 1845.

Emily Davies

Sarah Emily Davies (1830–1921) lived and crusaded during a time of profound change for education and women’s rights in England.

Sarah Emily Davies (1830–1921) lived and crusaded during a time of profound change for education and women’s rights in England. At the time of her birth, women’s suffrage was scarcely open to discussion, and not one of England’s universities (there were four) admitted women. By the time of her death, not only had the number of universities grown to twelve, all of which were open to women; women had also begun to get the vote. Davies’s own activism in the women’s movement and in the social and educational reform movements of the time culminated in her founding of Girton College, Cambridge University, the first residential college of higher education for women. Much of the social change that Davies witnessed—and helped to effect—was discussed, encouraged, and elicited through her personal correspondence. These letters, written to friends, allies, and potential supporters during the years of Davies’s greatest political and social activity, reveal the evolution of her skill and sophistication as an activist. They also show the development of women’s suffrage, education, and journalism movements from a group of loosely affiliated like-minded friends to an astute and organized political network of reformers. In these letters–most of which have never been published—we see Davies struggle to understand and theorize about the role of women, cajole and encourage potential supporters, explore complexities of various reform movements, and demonstrate her formidable attention to detail in inventing and constructing an imaginable new institution. Her intensely engaged life placed Davies at the very heart of the events that transformed her era.
