Review quote

I am thrilled that Marta Werner, who has been working on the late fragments and drafts for years, has collaborated with the visual artist Jen Bervin to produce this marvelous edition: It has taken years and years for this aspect of Emily Dickinson to be made visible.... The Gorgeous Nothings claims our attention with a new Emily Dickinson. This edition itself is a work of art. --Susan Howe
