Description - After Emily: Two Remarkable Women and the Legacy of America's Greatest Poet by Julie Dobrow
"Mesmerizing. . . . If you're interested in juicy behind-the-scenes literary history, After Emily is your book."- Washington Post
Though their story is little- known, mother and daughter Mabel Loomis Todd and Millicent Todd Bingham brought Emily Dickinson's genius to light. Utilizing letters, diaries, and journals long relegated to the archives, Julie Dobrow reveals the intrigue of Dickinson's literary beginnings, including a tumultuous affair, controversial editorial decisions, and a battle over the right to define the "Belle of Amherst."
"Dobrow's intimate account reveals how decisively [Mabel and Millicent's] efforts shaped perceptions of the white- clad recluse and her visionary poems. Scandal and pathos abound." - The New Yorker
"Long overdue. . . . At the end of her book, Ms. Dobrow wonders what Mabel and Millicent would think of her good work. Doubtless, they'd be very pleased." - Brenda Wineapple, Wall Street Journal
"[Dobrow] serves as a kind of fiercely clever detective in stitching together Todd's remarkable influence and all the other little intrigues behind the marketing of Dickinson and her legacy." - American Scholar
