The Poetry of Emily Dickinson (LIT2434.01)

Mark Wunderlich

Emily Dickinson is one of the most innovative, strange and dynamic poets America has produced, and her work remains among the most popular and elusive poetry in English. In this course we will conduct close readings of her poems and letters, discuss the cultural context in which her work was written and unpack some of the myths about her life that have persisted for decades. Students will read closely, write critically and creatively, and discuss her work and the world in which that work was made.


Learning Outcomes:
Close reading.
Critical writing.
Creative thinking.
Placing literature into an historical context.
