In Measures of Possibility, Domhnall Mitchell sets out to test the hypothesis of Dickinson's textual radicalism, and its consequences for readers, students, and teachers, by looking closely at features such as spacing, the physical direction of the writing, and letter-shapes in handwritten lyric and epistolary texts.
Through systematic contextualization and cross-referencing, Mitchell provides the reader with a critical apparatus by which to measure the extent to which contemporary approaches to Dickinson's autograph procedures can reasonably be formulated as corresponding to the poet's own purposes.

Reading Dickinson's poems in the context of the Civil War in Emily Dickinson: A Voice of War, Shira Wolosky argues that Dickinson's poetry "can be seen as profoundly engaged in problems of the external world, and aggressively so.
Who are you? Domhnall Mitchell's new book Emily Dickinson: Monarch of Perception provides an excellent example of the enriched understanding of Dickinson's life, letters, and poems that can come from a socially and historically grounded approach to her work. Arguing that even those critics who "claim that Dickinson was not a private poet tend to re-privatize her writerly practice by concentrating on its cultural, religious, or textual-biographical aspects" 1 , Mitchell "aims to amend the tendency to privatize Dickinson's literary documents and to look instead at how and why her poetry relates to the social spaces and languages that surrounded it in nineteenth-century Amherst" 2.
