Liberating Poetic Chaos: Emily Dickinson, with Steve Ely

Room HW2/33 Harold Wilson Building, University of Huddersfield, HD1 3DH

Emily Dickinson's poetry emerges from a chaotic inner life in which biographical elements are transformed by a visionary imagination informed by her religious training, experience of the American civil war, a love of nature, the observational eye of a scientist - and the existential terror and exhilaration she felt when she contemplated the fierce and fathomless powers of the inscrutable Universe she found herself thrown into. 
With West Yorkshire poet, Steve Ely, participants will identify the elements of Dickinson's chaos and complete writing exercises in her style and spirit.
