ive been using the same paperback (as opposed to the hardback, which
includes every known variant of each poem, down to missing dashes,
mispellings and single word replacements) edition of johnson for my last 3
dickinson seminars. though each professor made it a point to remark that the
act of printing dickinson is in and of itself a kind of editing, we havent
really spent any time on fascicles of her own handwriting.
this is, however, berkeley, so it just might be that the rest of the world
does dickinson in a different register.
p.s. SAT tip: _dickinson_ is to _plath_ as _a poet_ is to _a rampaging
baboon flinging feces of its own making_
