The Emily Dickinson Archive

The literary world has been abuzz with the news that Emily Dickinson’s papers are now digitized and available online for all to click, peruse, and enjoy. The Public Domain Review has just published a feature by Mike Kelly, curator at the Archives and Special Collections of Amherst College, who highlights some of the more interesting pieces in the collection.

In logistical terms, what’s truly remarkable about the Emily Dickinson Archive is that it is a collaboration among several institutions that hold her papers, including Amherst, Smith, Harvard’s Houghton Library, and the Boston Public Library.  Now that these giants have found a way to work together, what can be better than sitting at your desk sipping tea/coffee or your drink of choice and browsing through Dickinson’s archive, looking for poems, letters, and the odd recipe?
