Whitman & Dickinson is the first collection to bring together original essays by European and North American scholars directly linking the poetry and ideas of Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson. The essays present intersections between these great figures across several fields of study, rehearsing well-established topics from new perspectives, opening entirely new areas of investigation, and providing new information about Whitman’s and Dickinson’s lives, work, and reception. Essays included in this book cover the topics of mentoring influence on each poet, religion, the Civil War, phenomenology, the environment, humor, poetic structures of language, and Whitman’s and Dickinson’s twentieth- and twenty-first–century reception—including prolonged engagement with Adrienne Rich’s response to this “strange uncoupled couple” of poets who stand at the beginning of an American national poetic. Contributors Include: Marina Camboni Andrew Dorkin Vincent Dussol Betsy Erkkilä Ed Folsom Christine Gerhardt Jay Grossman Jennifer Leader Marianne Noble Cécile Roudeau Shira Wolosky

Essay from the year 2006 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Marburg, course: Introduction to the study of English Literature, 0 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: “To a Locomotive in Winter”, written by Walt Whitman, is about a locomotive, that is described as very strong and powerful in a positive way. In the poem it becomes clear that the speaker is a supporter of the technological progress of America, represented by the locomotive, because he tries to establish a connection between poetry and science. Emily Dickinson’s “I like to see it lap the Miles” is also about a locomotive. Again poetry and science are linked in a certain way but in contrast to Whitman her poem has some negative connotations. So maybe the speaker is no supporter of America’s technological progress or at least he is afraid of the future fortune.

Though Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman spent their lives unwed, their afterlives have never been free of marital vows. Take Whitman, who--having ducked an early proposal from Anne Gilchrist, a widowed, English admirer--finds himself the imaginary suitor to Ronald Johnson and Hart Crane. Dickinson, however, on account of her perceived seclusion, prompts us not to thoughts of consummation, but of extended courtship. In the following study I investigate how marriage and weddings permeate the core poetry in question, before exploring the marital permutations in the afterlives of Walt and Emily. Marriage serves as both subject matter and metaphor, leading me to such texts as Edward Weston's photographs for a 1941 Leaves of Grass (made with Charis Wilson, his new, and soon to be ex-, wife); the poetry of same-sex weddings; Jerome Charyn's daring novel The Secret Life of Emily Dickinson (2010); Joyce Carol Oates's short story "EDickinsonRepliLuxe" (2008); and Paul Di Filippo's peculiar steampunk novella, "Walt and Emily" (1995), where the titular characters fall in love.
