So I'm watching the Amazon series with the totally awesome Hailee Steinfeld. She's just knocking that part out so far. My favorite lead actress performance of anyone in 2 years.... last one I remember liking as much is Emma Stone in La La Land.
So begs the question.... does anyone here read Dickinson or know anything about her? I'm clueless about her, but I couldn't get through 30 pages of Walden (I say this because Emily meets Thoreau in one episode of the series) - and if that's what her poetry is like it might not be my thing. Can anyone shed some light on this?

I read Emily Dickinson's work from time to time. I love her. As far as information about her, she was famously reclusive. I read that she got a reputation for wearing white all the time (though in pictures I've seen, she wasn't) and used to send a basket down from her window filled with treats for the neighborhood children.
