Example text

Are Dickinson’s letters “literary” letters as Todd suggested, “letter-poems” as Hart and Smith have argued, “prose-formatted poems” as Shurr claims, or, as some might argue, simply letters. These and other questions about Dickinson’s intentions in her manuscripts are radically undecideable. ”21 What the various alterations, excisions, and editorial translations of Dickinson’s “work” suggests is the socially constituted, interactive, and collaborative nature of authors and texts. Rather than leading us to recognize the social location of the writer and writing, however, recent contests over the editing of Dickinson appear to be leading us – or at least some of us – in just the opposite direction: backward toward the room, and the box, and the manuscripts where Dickinson locked the purity of her authorial intentions.
