Rotten Reviews: Emily Dickinson

“An eccentric, dreamy, half-educated recluse in an out-of-the-way New England Village–or anywhere else–cannot with impunity set at defiance the laws of gravity and grammar…. Oblivion lingers in the immediate neighborhood.”

Thomas Bailey Aldrich, Atlantic Monthly, 1892

Excerpted from: Bernard, Andre, and Bill Henderson, eds. Pushcart’s Complete Rotten Reviews and Rejections. Wainscott, NY: Pushcart Press, 1998.
