Nice book, started out more interested in the gardening angle, but then got into Dickinson and her life. Still working at her poems. Grady Harp Top Contributor: Emily Dickinson continues to fascinate the literary world, not only because of her unique, eerily beautiful poetry, but also because of the delicious mystery that cocoons her life well over one hundred years after her death.
Some have painted her as a looney eccentric, some as a recluse shrouded in sexual ecstasy: Yet few investigators have the quaint, informed pique as the highly admired Dickinson scholar, Judith Farr. Like the previous books, Farr does not confine her writing to academia though she obviously has consumed every bit of available information on her subject and footnoted these books extensively: Farr prefers to open doors and windows of imagination to make the factual data supplied have a semblance to the radiance of Dickinson's gifts to posterity. During Emily Dickinson's lifetime - the poet was better know for her commitment to the oh-so-proper Victorian art of gardening.
Books on Botany from that period held dominion over reading tables and bookshelves and Dickinson was as astute a garden scholar as the best of them. Flowers are frequently referenced in her poetry, her letters, her life, and Farr has used this other half of Dickinson's life as a means to explore the meanings of her poems.

In each of these chapters Farr takes almost every reference to flowers in Dickinson's poems and discusses their significance both herbally and philosophically and passionately. The characters that played significant roles in Dickinson's odd life are all addressed Susan Dickinson, Bowles, Higginson, etc by referencing letters to and poems about each , and each bit of evidence breathes floral dimensions. Almost as an intermission to this theatrical diversion, Farr has placed a chapter by Louise Carter "Gardening with Emily Dickinson" which is well written and serves to ground the ongoing growing tales of the Belle of Amherst with a sophisticated diversion on the techniques of the Victorian Gardener - a chapter which could easily find its way into all Garden books!
And aptly, in a manner that would no doubt find Dickinson's approval, Farr ends her book with an Epilogue, which indeed places all of her information in perspective and is enlightening to both the scholar and the occasional reader of the Poetry of Emily Dickinson. Judith Farr is a solid scholar, a fine writer, and if at times she cannot resist the tendency to 'personalize' her data, then that is merely her style and for this reader is only additive. The preface page of her book quotes the words of Thomas Wentworth Higginson: I wonder which aspect of Emily Dickinson she will explore next Judith Farr is a wonderful biographer, and the body of the book is a delight.
