'Emily Dickinson's Garden: The Poetry of Flowers Spring' Exhibition at The New York Botanical Garden, 5/1-6/13

During her lifetime, Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) was better known as a gardener than as a poet. Plants and flowers significantly influenced her poetry and other writings, most of which were not published until after her death. The New York Botanical Garden's multi-venue exhibition, Emily Dickinson's Garden: The Poetry of Flowers, will illuminate Dickinson's life and work, the connections that exist between her life and poems, and her study and love of flowers and gardens. Dickinson's poems have become an integral part of the American literary canon, yet the fundamental impact that plants and flowers had on her poetry is little known by the public. From May 1 through June 13, the Botanical Garden's exhibition will reveal this new perspective on one of the greatest Romantic poets of the Victorian era, immersing visitors in the garden, life, and poems of Emily Dickinson in contemporary, fresh ways.
