WILD NIGHTS WITH EMILY
The myth that Emily Dickinson was a gifted, but reclusive spinster has persevered for centuries. Informed by a new look at Dickinson’s archives as well as the testimony of her niece, Wild Nights with Emily is an irreverent and quirky retelling of Dickinson’s story, positing that the legendary poet had a passionate affair and friendship with her sister-and-law, and that her hopes for wide publication during her lifetime were thwarted by male literary gatekeepers.
