dc.description.abstractAs a high school student I always dreaded our annual Emily Dickinson poem assignment, because, to be honest, the nineteenth-century poet from Amherst, Massachusetts didn’t speak to me. One can only consider ‘Hope is the Thing With Feathers’ so many times, after all. In graduate school, however, I underwent an attitude adjustment after taking a course entitled “One Hundred Years of American Poetry,” which covered the 1830s to the Great Depression. I entered the class fully convinced that I would carry on with my Dickinson disdain, but, then, ‘A Bird, came down the walk’ changed my mind. Meg Groeling’s ongoing ECW series on Walt Whitman has offered me a reminder of the profound and unexpected effects the Civil War had on American Literature. These effects are visible in both the poetry and letters of Emily Dickinson, and are currently being delightfully investigated in the Apple TV+ series Dickinson (now in its second season).
