Writing the Self and Nature through the Work of Emily Dickinson

May 4 @ 10:00 am


Emily Dickinson was a poet of extraordinary depth, mystical reach, and literary innovation. Her iconic observations of both the natural world and human nature take the reader into an exploration of what death means, what love is, and how one’s own back garden contains the universe. Because she has been so profoundly misunderstood by literary scholars and historians alike, we will discuss her true biography: for example, she was not a recluse, nor a rejected spinster. Through a day-long journey into Dickinson’s work and world, as we enjoy the natural beauty of the Gell Center, we will read deeply, write in multiple forms, discover personal truths, and share our stories. Light breakfast and lunch included.
