Emily Dickinson Research Trends
Yay for research, which feels like all I have been doing for the last few days. So I have been looking at the various ways in which Emily Dickinson is analyzed looking for how to compare it properly with video. As I have been doing so I have wondered if I should include the sublime into my paper, because I have seen it often in her poetry and in the criticism. However, I don’t want to trample on someone else’s toes, because I know that someone else is already writing on the digital sublime (you know who you are). However, I almost feel that the sublime is easier to capture or see in the video form, we can express in images what is almost impossible to express elsewhere.
