Congratulations to Cristanne Miller, SUNY Distinguished Professor and Edward H. Butler Professor of English at the University at Buffalo, has received the Modern Language Association’s biennial award. The MLA has awarded its recognition for outstanding scholarly editions every other year beginning in 1995.

Miller is recognized for her book, “Emily Dickinson’s Poems: As She Preserved Them” (Belknap Press).

“Increasingly, I have felt that the most useful thing I can do for the profession and for my own particular fields in the profession is to produce eminently readable, clear, critical editions,” said Miller. “Editing Dickinson’s poems is a particularly contentious area within the world of textual editions. It is therefore extremely gratifying to have my edition of Dickinson’s poems considered a ‘masterpiece of scholarly production.’”  Cristanne Miller

Miller is an author of five books an advisory board member of the Emily Dickinson Archive.
