Miss Emily’s Fire: The Orthodox Elements in Emily Dickinson’s Spirituality and Mysticism

   
Archbishop Chrysostomos

Number XLV of Monographic Supplement Series

“My purpose, here, is to take Dickinson’s religious language for what it is, as naïve and ingenuous as that goal may seem to those schooled in poetic interpretation. My reading of her poetry, over some decades, has convinced me that her theological and spiritual intuitions are far more understandable to an Eastern Orthodox believer than to religious—and non-religious—scholars formed in the Western Christian spiritual milieu. The latter variously describe her as a self-proclaimed pagan, an atheist, or a believer with diverse confessional deficits, depending on the extent of their religiosity or their doctrinal persuasion. In discussing her poetry, I will quite simply explore what I see as Dickinson’s clearly Orthodox sensitivities.
