This Was A Poet: The World and Work of Emily Dickinson
Through lecture, discussion, and close analysis, we will explore the work of Emily Dickinson, arguably the greatest American poet. When Henry David Thoreau was asked why he never traveled, he replied “I have traveled much in Concord.” Emily Dickinson also traveled much in her own home of Amherst, MA. Her narrow, private world was actually immensely wide and universal. Her small, focused poems expand our view of the world and of ourselves.
