Radical Scatters is a collection containing Emily Dickinson's late fragments and related texts. The images of the manuscripts of Emily Dickinson are reproduced courtesy of the libraries and individuals noted in this collection and the Harvard University Press.
The core of this archive consists of eighty-two documents carrying over one hundred fragmentary texts composed by Emily Dickinson. The criteria for inclusion used in the current version of Radical Scatters are as follows: all of the fragments featured as "core" texts have been assigned composition dates of roughly 1870 or after; all of the core fragments are materially discrete (that is, fragments have not been editorially excerpted from other compositions); and all of the core fragments are inherently autonomous, whether or not they also appear as traces in other texts, and inherently resistant to claims of closure.
