Emily Dickinson, Poetry That Can ‘Break the Brain’

This poem is an excellent entrance point into Emily Dickinson’s work; it shows off the two things she does best. First, the slow realization that life is both utterly fulfilling AND sad, somehow all at once. That problem can be found in the very first line with the empty word “it” that begins the poem and with the word “eventually” at the end of the line (which equivocates the initial future tense).

Emily Dickinson homestead in Amherst to undergo restoration

AMHERST – Work is underway to renovate Emily Dickinson homestead and museum to restore house where she lived and wrote, to how it was in 19th century. “The Museum is committed to providing visitors with an increasingly authentic experience of the homes and grounds inhabited by the Dickinson family, and this restoration will have a profound impact on that experience. It will not only triple the amount of restored space in the Homestead accessible to guests, but also add critical details to their understanding of Dickinson’s daily life,” the Museum Executive Director Jane Wald in a press release Wednesday.

The Passionate Life of Emily Dickinson

When I first learned about Emily Dickinson in school, they essentially told us she was very popular and beloved but we had next to no information about her. Most of the information we have about her comes from correspondence because she is thought to have lived most of her life in isolation. Whether she did or not, we have a fair amount of information about her family and early life, and much less about her later life. This could be why Emily Dickinson media is having a bit of a moment right now. From the Apple TV+ show Dickinson to the 2018 film Wild Nights with Emily, it’s clear there is an interest in exploring the beloved poet’s motivations and inspirations.
