Sunday, June 13, 2010 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm
Emily Dickinson was a famous recluse, but she wasn’t alone in her father’s house. Murray, a scholar who has worked at the Emily Dickinson Museum, looks at the poet’s relationship with the various maids and cooks who were her near-constant companions and finds evidence of their cultural and linguistic influence in Dickinson’s writing.
