Voices And Visions : Emily Dickinson
1988. Emily Dickinson – Voices & Visions – A documentary chronicling the life and works of 19th century American poet, Emily Dickinson (1830-1886). Few poets have looked deeper into the centre of being than Emily Dickinson (1830-1886). Expressing both doubt and joy, her compressed and urgent poems swing from lucidity and wit to despair and death-obsession. This film illuminates the passionate genius of this unconventional recluse, recreating her environment, with commentary by Adrienne Rich, Joyce Carol Oates and others.
