Info

This month's topic: Who's Who in the Dickinson Lexicon. What do Queen Elizabeth, Captain Kidd, William Tell, and Sappho have in common? Give up? They are all named in Emily Dickinson poems! We know that Dickinson populated her verse with flora and fauna, but what people did she choose to include - and why? In this session, we will look at the complete list of historical figures mentioned in Dickinson's poetry (not including biblical or literary characters, family members, and friends) and discuss several poems in which some of them serve as metaphors or analogies. This month's facilitator is Bruce M. Penniman.

The Emily Dickinson Museum's Poetry Discussion Group meets monthly, September through May, for lively conversation about Emily Dickinson's poetry and letters. The Poetry Discussion Group meets at the Center for Humanistic Inquiry on the second floor of Amherst College's Frost Library. Participants should proceed directly to the Library and do not need to stop at the Museum. While no RSVP is required, participants are invited to email to receive a list of poems for discussion.
