I knew nothing about Emily Dickinson before reading this book. Now I feel like I have a good running start. As the title suggests, Roger Lundin sets the book against the backdrop of the religious, political and social events of the times and the extraordinary changes that took place in all those areas throughout the 19th century. Despite the fact that Dickinson was an avowed recluse, she was profoundly affected. Despite seeing people on very rare occasions, she read voraciously, kept up with cur [...]

I approached this bio with skepticism and was surprised how much I liked it. Despite approaching Dickinson from a religious perspective, it is more an exploration of her religious life than a religious angle on her life. In other words, Lundin does not try to prove that Dickinson was a Christian by contemporary evangelical standards--or that she wasn't.

I liked this book a lot, but the actual biographical bits were more interesting than the philosophical bits. He also seemed to reuse some of Dickinson's quotes a lot, which struck me as strange. Additionally, many of the concluding paragraphs in each chapter said the same thing in different ways which annoyed me. It's like he only had one main point (despite the diversity of the chapter subjects), and felt the need to reiterate it frequently.

There's a lot more to Emily than you might think. She wasn't just a crazy recluse, I promise.
