Summary
  • "This book explores how Emily Dickinson, H.D., and Gertrude Stein each develop strategies that allow them to access the inspiration and poetic knowledge known as the sublime while at the same time rejecting its traditional structure of domination and violence. Consciously writing "as women," these writers inscribe the sublime with values of empathy and intersubjectivity associated with women's psychological development, values not usually accommodated by the history of the sublime or by modernist American culture."--Jacket
