I took a class on Emily Dickinson in college, one of the best classes I took. We met at her house (!) in Amherst, MA. I learned a ton and having access to her house & the Evergreens next door was an excellent side-effect.
ED seems to be pretty popular these days, with a few articles published in the NYT recently:
- "My Hero, the Outlaw of Amherst"
- "The Poet as Gardener and Tigerlily"
- a slideshow on the ED garden exhibition: "Emily Dickinson's Garden"
Getting pretty excited to head back to my very own campus for my 10-year college reunion. So many lovely people will be there!
