Join Eleanor Elson Heginbotham in a discussion of the mysterious genius of American poet Emily Dickinson and her legacy. Professor Heginbotham will offer an update on what you know about Emily Dickinson and introduce you to the way she "lit but lamps" in subsequent poets who wrote about the poet who might be called our first "modernist" poet and who reflected Dickinson in their work (Marianne Moore, Adrienne Rich, Sylvia Plath, and our contemporary, the former Poet Laureate of the United States, Tracy K. Smith).
Professor Emerita of Concordia University Saint Paul, Heginbotham has published two books on Dickinson's "Fascicles" and scores of articles on aspects of American literature. She has taught and spoken around the world and for 18 happy years at Bethesda's Stone Ridge Academy of the Sacred Heart.
