Fame is a fickle food- Not soaked in Brandy for a Month


Our journey through Season 2 of Apple TV+’s Dickinson continues as Emily has her first brush with fame- as the winner of the Amherst (Am’erst?) Cattle Show Baking Contest. Is this what she wants? Or will she resist the call of the Baking Contest Circuit in favor of something else? As Mrs. Dickinson tell us, one win is nice but two is momentum! Watch Hailee Steinfeld conjure one of Emily’s more incisive poems out of thin air while the rest of Amherst gorges themselves on that monstrous cake she has made.

Here’s Emily’s haymaker of a meditation on Fame (that last line tho…):

Fame is a fickle food
Upon a shifting plate
Whose table once a
Guest but not
The second time is set
Whose crumbs the crows inspect
And with ironic caw
Flap past it to the
Farmer’s corn
Men eat of it and die
