Two more seasons are in the works.
Dickinson takes place “during Emily Dickinson‘s era with a modern sensibility and tone.
It takes viewers into the world of Emily, audaciously exploring the constraints of society, gender, and family from the perspective of a budding writer who doesn’t fit in to her own time …
It’s weird and somehow compelling. Modern dialogue. Modern music.
All the characters are great. My favourite is Darlene Hunt as Maggie, their hilarious maid.
74% on Rotten Tomatoes.
A bit gimmicky, I thought the novelty might wear off. BUT season 2 was even better. 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.
I hadn’t known that Emily Dickinson’s legendary poetry was not acclaimed until after her death in 1886. Her sister discovered the cache of 1,800 poems and finally had them published. That’s not what’s happening in the TV series.
