Emily Dickinson at NY Botanical Gardens

Emily Dickinson: The Poetry of Flowers from The New York Botanical Garden on Vimeo.

During her lifetime, Emily Dickinson was better known as a gardener than as a poet. With the New York Botanical Garden’s multi-venue exhibition, Emily Dickinson’s Garden: The Poetry of Flowers, discover the renowned poet’s life among gardens and spring flowers. A flower show in the Haupt Conservatory will feature a re-creation of Dickinson’s own mid-19th-century New England flower garden, and visitors can stroll through a replica of the family property in Amherst, Massachusetts, including the Homestead, Emily’s own home, as well as her brother’s home, the Evergreens, and the beloved wooded pathway that joined the two. Read about her garden and exhibition.
