Under the able direction of a highly qualified board of editors, the Dickinson Electronic Archives is "devoted to the study of Emily Dickinson, her writing practices, writings directly influencing her work, and critical and creative writings generated by her work." The Archives has been online since 1997, and contains a nice selection of her correspondence with friends and colleagues and a number of critical articles by contributors to the project, including the pieces "Emily Dickinson Writing a Poem" and "The Letter-Poem, A Dickinson Genre". A real highlight of the site is the Responses area, as visitors can browse through a section titled "Titanic Operas". The title for the section comes from Dickinson's famous response to her contemporary, Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Here visitors can read the responses of various well-known poets and authors (such as Joyce Carol Oates and Gwendolyn Brooks) to her works.
