- Editorial Note
This issue of the Emily Dickinson Journal marks the end of my tenure as editor. The time has come to offer thanks and say a few goodbyes.
To the Board of EDIS, thank you for your unflagging support. At Wright State University, the College of Liberal Arts, the Department of English, and graduate students within the Department who have served as managing editors of the EDJ during these past years all have my profound thanks and gratitude. Collectively and individually, my students especially have steadied my editorial ship with their hard work, intelligence, and good humor.
My thanks go as well to the many professional reviewers who have so freely lent their time and expertise in evaluating submitted manuscripts. The publications staff at the Johns Hopkins University Press have helped me overcome technical hurdles again and again. Thanks to the many authors who put up with my editorial nattering and intrusions. Thanks to our readers, who support this journal’s efforts to keep Dickinson scholarship moving forward.
I am confident the EDJ will persevere in uncovering new thinking and vivid writing about Emily Dickinson. During troubled times experienced personally, nationally, and internationally, her poems continue to provide comfort, clarity, and light. [End Page vii]
