I am afraid to own a piano-

Summary

Hello everyone,

It’s Dickinson episode 5. This week the gang is performing Shakespeare’s Othello. A difficult episode today, and we have some thoughts. Maybe you do too. Contact us on edictsonedicks@gmail.com, we want to hear from you. Thanks again to Alena Smith and everyone at Apple TV+ for bringing us this episode of Dickinson.

Emily’s poem today:

I am afraid to own a Body—

I am afraid to own a Soul—

Profound—precarious Property—

Possession, not optional—

Double Estate—entailed at pleasure

Upon an unsuspecting Heir—

Duke in a moment of Deathlessness

And God, for a Frontier.

Again, the music at the top of the episode was Hailee Steinfeld’s ‘Afterlife’.
