By Jerome Charyn
“Remarkable perception . . . [a] precise meditation/investigation. . . . Jerome Charyn the unpredictable, elusive, and enigmatic is a typical fit for Emily Dickinson, the quintessence of these." —Joyce Carol Oates, writer of untamed Nights! and The misplaced Landscape
We imagine we all know Emily Dickinson: the Belle of Amherst, virginal, reclusive, and doubtless mad. yet in A Loaded Gun, Jerome Charyn introduces us to another Emily Dickinson: the fierce, exceptional, and sexually charged poet who wrote:
My existence had stood—a Loaded Gun—
Though I than He— may perhaps longer live
He longer must—than I—
For i've got however the strength to kill,
Without—the strength to die—
Through interviews with modern students, shut readings of Dickinson's correspondence and handwritten manuscripts, and a suggestive, newly chanced on picture that's alleged to exhibit Dickinson together with her lover, Charyn's literary sleuthing unearths the good poet in ways in which have simply been hinted at formerly: as a lady who used to be deeply philosophical, intensely engaged with the area, drawn to participants of either sexes, and ready to write poetry that disturbs and delights us today.
Jerome Charyn is the writer of, so much lately, sour Bronx: 13 tales, i'm Abraham: a singular of Lincoln and the Civil struggle, and the key lifetime of Emily Dickinson: a singular. He lives in New York.
