Now widely assigned to the first rank of American poets, Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) was unknown and unpublished in her lifetime. Since her death well over a century ago, nearly 1,800 of her lyric poems have been discovered... The Poet in Her Bedroom is the first program in the Emily Dickinson "Angles of a Landscape" series.
"The Poet in Her Bedroom," a 32-minute program, is the first volume of the television series "Angles of a Landscape: Perspectives on Emily Dickinson" which explores little-known aspects of Dickinson's life and work.
The DVD features a penetrating narration by Joni Denn from a script by Terry Y. Allen and superb videography by James MacAllister. Acclaimed pianist Estela Kersenbaum Olevsky performs a seldom heard musical score, Franz Liszt's transcription of Beethoven's song cycle "To the Distant Beloved."
"The Poet in Her Bedroom" was produced and edited by Ernest Urvater and created under the auspices of the Emily Dickinson Museum. It provides lovers of poetry with an inspired introduction to the work and world of one of the greatest of all English-language poets.
