EMILY DICKINSON: A SATIRE BEYOND THE MYTH
1 May 2019 | by babyjaguarSee all my reviews

This film by Madeline Olken is abit of satire on real life events. Poet, Dickinson was said to have bisexuality as a theme in her poetry. The film delves into her lifestyle within a conservative environment, whilst trying to have a love relationship with her sister-in-law, Susan Dickinson.

This film does well with satire in depicting Dickinson's life. The pace of the film works with the witty humor personified by Molly Shannon's portrayal of the poet. Behind the burgeoning setting, it explores Dickinson as poet trying to assert her writing to a male dominated literary scene.

The film brings light to Dickinson's poetry, which seemed always tragic, misunderstood but questions one's existence. It follows a young relationship between two young women until the death of Dickinson, with devoted caring from Susan.

Although this film has a humorous tone, it takes seriously in how women writers weren't taken seriously or equal to era-related white male authors. The film trys to break down via satire, the mythology that lies behind Dickinson's lifework.
