Description
"Emily Dickinson was a keen observer of the natural world, but less well known is the fact that she was also an avid gardener- sending fresh bouquets to friends, including pressed flowers in her letters, and studying botany at Amherst Academy and Mount Holyoke. At her family home, she tended both a small glass conservatory and a flower garden. In Emily Dickinsons Gardening Life, award-winning author Marta McDowell explores Dickinsons deep passion for plants and how it inspired and informed her writing. Tracing a year in the garden, the book reveals details few know about Dickinson and adds to our collective understanding of who she was as a person. By weaving together Dickinsons poems, excerpts from letters, contemporary and historical photography, and botanical art, McDowell offers an enchanting new perspective on one of Americas most celebrated but enigmatic literary figures." --,Description provided by publisher.
