A new film, “A Quiet Passion,” examines the life of the American poet, Emily Dickinson (1830 – 1886). “A Quiet Passion” will be released in limited theaters on April 14. For a brief view, see “A Quiet Passion” Trailer. Because Dickinson is a significant figure in the history of American poetry, we are mentioning this film and providing a “Dig Deeper” compiled by Sarah Wingo, English Literature and Theatre librarian, to help our readers discover more about her.
