Of course, above this fascinating compendium of works on the women who vigorously created many of the lasting assumptions about Amer - i can poetry hovers Dickinson’s ghost, so oen r ft egarded among American women poets as the exception who proves the rule. Yet as Loeffelholz’s closing essay on the 1890s reception of Dickinson’s verse makes explicit, history itself presents a compelling case for Dickinson’s intricat-e associa tion with her female predecessors.
