An Emily Dickinson Study Day with Fiona Lucraft in Ely

Sunday 8th September 2013

  • Venue The Bookshop, 9 High Street, Ely, CB7 4LJ
  • Doors open 1am
  • Start time 10am

After her highly successful courses on the Victorians and the novels of Jane Austen, Fiona Lucraft turns to one of the most remarkable literary figures of the Nineteenth Century. Working through a series of questions, Fiona considers the major themes of Emily Dickinson’s remarkable poetry, together with the reclusive life that gave rise to it, the influences that fed into it, and its American context. Dickinson’s distinctive voice and outlook will be examined across a range of poems and letters, with no preliminary reading required, but a willingness to join discussion and share opinions encourage.

There are 10 places available for this study day.
