In These Fevered Days, a New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice, Martha Ackmann unravels the mysteries of Dickinson’s life through ten decisive episodes that distill her evolution as a poet.
We see the poet through her exhilarating frenzy of composition, through which we come to understand her fiercely self-critical eye and her relationship with sister-in-law and first reader. Using thousands of archival letters and poems as well as never-before-seen photos, Ackmann constructs a remarkable map of Dickinson’s inner life, providing new insight into her wildly original poetry.
Class meets Thursdays: August 19 and 26 and September 2
