Emily Dickinson DVD
Too often, Emily Dickinson is seen as an eccentric, white-garbed recluse who composed verse among the lilacs. First and foremost, however, Emily Dickinson was a grand American poet, a poet whose entire life was reflected, shaped, and probed in her work.Dickinson‰۪s nearly 2,000 poems are not the recordings of a cowering victim, but of an intense and perceptive talent. This production, filmed in Amherst, highlights Dickinson‰۪s life and major works in American literature. The DVD includes a printable teacher guide featuring handouts, activities, testing, vocabulary words, and more. 20 minutes. Grades 5-12.
