Informazioni su di me"My hair is bold like the chestnut burr; and my eyes, like the sherry in the glass that the guest leaves."

Interests: Writing poetry and I love reading, gardening, and baking. My two favorite writers are Elizabeth Barrett Browning and George Eliot (their portraits hang on the wall in my room).

I attended the Amherst Academy and spent a year at the Mount Holyoke Female Seminary. I have studied the writings of Virgil and Latin, mathematics, history, and botany.

"You inquire my Books – For Poets – I have Keats – and Mr and Mrs Browning. For Prose – Mr Ruskin – Sir Thomas Brown - and the Revelations."
[Emily Dickinson to T.W. Higginson, 1862]

"Replenishing the Shelves"
http://emilydickinsonmuseum.org/book_list

Update, October 2012, from the Emily Dickinson Museum email newsletter:

[There is currently a] ...search focused on locating an 1847 edition of Ranthorpe: or a Poet's First Struggles, by George Henry Lewes, one of the books Dickinson kept on the mantle in her bedroom. This search proved to be difficult, turning up only recent paperback editions. We hope you'll keep looking for this volume...

In the meantime, we invite you to join the search for the stories of author's lives that interested Dickinson almost as much as her life interests us! Here are three titles to begin with:
* Life of William Blake, in 2 vols., by Alexander Gilchrist. London: MacMillan, 1863.
* Short Studies of American Authors, by Thomas Wentworth Higginson. Boston: Lee & Shepart; New York: C.T. Dillingham, 1880.
* The Life of Charlotte Brontë, by Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell. New York: Appleton, 1858. (N.B. This is not the 1857 first American edition.)

“Replenishing the Shelves” is a Dickinson Museum initiative aimed at recreating the libraries of the Homestead and The Evergreens as accurately as possible. The effort is dedicated to and led by Polly Longsworth, a longtime Dickinson scholar and the first chair of the Emily Dickinson museum’s board of governors. “Restocking the Dickinson family library dovetails with the museum’s mission of preserving the legacy of the Dickinson family,” said Longsworth. “Few possessions meant so much to them. Even though it would be a lifetime challenge to read all the books Emily Dickinson read, we welcome the support of friends in the great project of reassembling on the shelves those she lived with.” For more information on “Replenishing the Shelves,” please visit the Dickinson Museum’s Web site, emilydickinsonmuseum.org, or call executive director Jane Wald (413/542-2154)."

The library you will find listed here is of the Dickinson Homestead. Some of the volumes are also found in the library of the Evergreens next door, home of Austin Dickinson and his wife Susan. The list on "Replenishing the Shelves" is of the books the museum hopes to acquire - there are many more (the list is incomplete).

Note: The first quote is from the bartleby.com site and the second one is from the "Replenishing the Shelves" link.
