Before I Got My Eye Put Out – The Poetry of Emily Dickinson: Crash Course English Lit #8

In which John Green concludes the Crash Course Literature mini-series with an examination of the poetry of Emily Dickinson.

Sure, John explores the creepy biographical details of Dickinson’s life, but he also gets into why her poems have remained relevant over the decades.

John discusses Dickinson’s language, the structure of her work, her cake recipes. He also talks about Dickinson’s famously eccentric punctuation, which again ends up relating to her cake recipes.

Also, Dickinson’s coconut cake recipe is included.
