Emily Dickinson’s friend, Kate Scott Turner, quoted on p. 373. p. 16: The frogs sing sweet today – they have such pretty, lazy times – how nice to be a frog! Life and Letters, p. 232. Harvard: (L 262) p. 18: I started early, took my dog, And visited the sea; The mermaids in the basement Came out to look at me, Poems of Emily Dickinson (Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1891), p. 134. Harvard: (Fr 656) p. 20: I talk of all these things with Carlo, and his eyes grow meaning, and his shaggy feet keep a slower pace.

With Carlo around, her dresses probably ended up like mine had. I now saw Emily as a person who formed a long, loving relationship with a very large, messy dog. After my Emily Dickinson class was finished, I volunteered next door at the Evergreens for a semester. When I walked down the path between the two houses, I could imagine Carlo chasing squirrels or being ordered off the porch by Emily’s sister, Vinnie. He must have been a hard dog to ignore but an easy dog for Emily to love. Sources of Quotations Note: The sources listed are the ones consulted by the author.
