John Evangelist Walsh was born in Manhattan, New York on December 27, 1927 to Thomas and Ann (née Cunney) Walsh. He told The New York Times in 1982: ''We condensed a 14-volume set of 56 classics for young readers in the late 1960's, but the Bible had always been considered the ultimate challenge.

Despite this popular consensus, John Evangelist Walsh, in his new book Emily Dickinson in Love: The Case for Otis Lord, presents his own peculiar theory about the Master Letters’ intended recipient. Walsh proposes that the letters were intended for Judge Otis Phillips Lord, a close friend of Dickinson’s father and the man with whom she began a relationship in the late 1870s or early 1880s

Emily Dickinson in Love: The Case for Otis Lord by John Evangelist Walsh (Englis. Who was he?. For a century or more the identity of Emily Dickinson's mysterious "Master" has been eagerly sought, especially since three letters from her to him were found and published in 1955.

From the award-winning author of Poe the Detective: The Curious Circumstances Behind "The Mystery of Marie Roget" comes a compelling argument for the identity of Emily Dickinson’s true love

 

Proud of my broken heart

Since thou didst break it,

Proud of the pain I

Did not feel till thee . . .

Those words were written by Emily Dickinson to a married man. Who was he?

For a century or more the identity of Emily Dickinson’s mysterious “Master” has been eagerly sought, especially since three letters from her to him were found and published in 1955. In Emily Dickinson in Love, John Evangelist Walsh provides the first book-length treatment of this fascinating subject, offering a solution based wholly on documented facts and the poet’s own writings.

Crafting the affair as a love story of rare appeal, and writing with exquisite attention to detail, in Part I Walsh reveals and meticulously proves the Master to be Otis Lord, a friend of the poet’s father and a man of some reputation in law and politics. Part II portrays the full dimensions of their thirty-year romance, most of it clandestine, including a series of secret meetings in Boston.

After uncovering and confirming the Master’s identity, Walsh fits that information into known events of Emily’s life to make sense of facts long known but little understood—Emily’s decision to dress always in white, for instance, or her extreme withdrawal from a normal existence when she had previously been an active, outgoing friend to many men and women.

In a lengthy section of Notes and Sources, Walsh presents his proofs in abundant detail, demonstrating that the evidence favors one man so irresistibly that there is left no room for doubt. Each reader will decide if he has truly succeeded in making the case for Otis Lord.

Walsh fictionalizes the romance between Emily Dickinson and Otis Lord as well as the discovery of the letters that turned up in the possession of Millicent Todd Bingham. Much of it is highly believable and great fun to read. The book offers an expanded view of what we already know. There is very little that is new here, other than speculation about how the letters came into the possession of Austin Dickinson. I enjoyed it but it needs to be taken with a grain of salt. I find Walsh's speculations very seductive. He is quite the literary detective.

Any Dickinson fan will be glad to read this book. It's well researched and well written. I just wish we could find out even more about Dickinson and her life, but she seemed to plan it that way. You have to read her poetry to find out most of what she thought, felt, and did, but the author here does an excellent job of drawing conclusions through what is available. I did learn more about Emily Dickinson's heart, which I appreciate greatly. She came even more alive for me in reading this book. Recommended!
