Event: Class on Emily Dickinson with poet Tom Daley

Thursday April 25, 2013
11:45 AM until 1:45 PM


A FOUR-PART CLASS ON EMILY DICKINSON
with poet Tom Daley

Emily Dickinson's breadth of vision, her slyness, her experiments with poetic form, and her stunning imaginative power have earned her a seat among the greatest poets of the ages. Known in her time as "The Myth of Amherst" for her social elusiveness, once you dissolve the caricature of the poet as white-gowned recluse, a woman of great charm, humor, spiritual intensity, and genius emerges. In this class, we'll be reading some of Dickinson's poems and discussing how her biography informs and also distracts from an appreciation of her poetic skill.

The class will meet four times. Handouts of a different group of important poems by Dickinson will be distributed each week. We will examine her experimental use of rhyme and meter, her literary influences, and her engagement with human relations, spirituality, and nature. Class participation, including reading of Dickinson poems out loud and learning to analyze a Dickinson poem, will be encouraged.
