New Poems of Emily Dickinson -- a bold title! -- by William H. Shurr, with Anna Dunlap and Emily Grey Shurr, offers hundreds of new poems found within Emily's correspondence. Many of them are "fourteeners": a line of iambic tetrameter followed by a line of iambic trimeter. New Poems was published in 1993, and I recently spent a year obsessively reading it.

Emily Dickinson has a matchless, branching mind. Questions about her mostly return unanswered. Her secretive life repels investigative prying.
