“‘Stratford on Avon’ – accept us all!”
Dickinson and Shakespeare:
2021 Annual Meeting
Discuss aspects of Dickinson’s reading of or response to Shakespeare, and compare Dickinson’s and Shakespeare’s writings. Consider Shakespeare’s place in Dickinson’s society and literary culture and how Dickinson’s contemporaries engaged with Shakespeare.
Highlights include a keynote lecture by Adeline Chevrier-Bosseau, seminar-discussions led by Páraic Finnerty and Martha Nell Smith, Shakespeare readings, special Shakespeare-related tours of the Dickinson Museum and an exhibit of watercolors by Victoria Dickson. More details will be forthcoming in the next few weeks. Join the Emily Dickinson International Society for an opportunity to discuss the connections between these two extraordinary writers this summer!
