A Short Course: Some of the Essential Emily – November 12 to December 10

Our aim in this class is to look closely at about twenty poems over the course of five weeks. We recommend first of all reading the poems intensely, and in preparation, if you are inclined, to immerse yourselves in her letters, her biography, and some of the influential critical responses to her work. We won’t be lingering over her life, her reclusiveness, the intellectual background of 19th century Amherst, the various Emily legends. We will be trying to read some of her extraordinary poems.
