Colleen Webster Bringing Art to Life

Emily Dickinson

Colleen Webster as Emily DickinsonEmily Dickinson now occupies a sainted position in the canon of American literature, but during her lifetime in the mid 19th century, she was a mere town character, a bit of a recluse in Amherst, Massachusetts. While less than a dozen of her poems were published during her lifetime, she penned nearly 1,800 poems and neatly preserved them in hand-made notebooks which were discovered by her sister upon her death.

Colleen Webster brings this hermetic but brilliant poet to life in her one woman show that is accompanied by poetry readings and a visual display of images concerning Dickinson.
