Sounds ghastly …

… Like, Emily Dickinson, Whatever - Commentary. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Dickinson is a pandering distortion of the life of America’s most important 19th-century poet, and thus viewers should be careful to treat it for what it is—an intermittently amusing cartoon driven by trendy ideology, and not a serious appreciation of Emily Dickinson’s poetry or life.
The past and its inhabitants are best understood on their own terms, not our trendy ones.
