Another gorgeous Dickinson book for the wish list, "The Gorgeous Nothings"

The Gorgeous Nothings: Emily Dickinson's Envelope Poems - Emily Dickinson, Susan Howe

(from NPR):

 

"And, if we agree with editor Marta Werner, Dickinson was playing not only with the arrangement of words in poetic lines, but the arrangement of different groups of words on different parts of these envelopes. On a folded-over lip of one envelope, she describes a "Drunken man" (who may also be dead, or almost dead), "Oblivion bending / over him," and, written slanted over the curled edge, "enfolding him / with tender / infamy." It's the medium making the metaphor here, something usually reserved for sculpture. This is poetry in 3-D."
