Iain Morrison performs and reconstructs the complete works of Emily Dickinson
Mondays 15th April to 6th May
Iain Morrison will read aloud all of Emily Dickinson’s poems from the Thomas H. Johnson Edition of her work, over the course of four Mondays from 15th April to 6th May, 2013 at Forest Centre Plus.
Eavesdropping is possible between the hours of 12–2pm and 5.30–7.30pm. Free entry at 38 Castle Terrace, Edinburgh. Follow the sound of the voice once inside the glass-doored foyer.
A replica of Emily Dickinson’s iconic white dress has been fashioned for the reading by her namesake Emily Goodwin.
Following inspiration from Thomas H. Johnson’s ingenious categorisation of Dickinson’s poems in his labyrinthine and fascinating Subject Index, Iain Morrison will create his own subjective diagram of the 1775 included poems’ relationships to each other and to Emily Dickinson herself, imagined self-concealed in her homestead. Argyle House, Forest Centre Plus’ homestead, stands in in the imagination with its own concealments and partial revelations, booths, rooms and glass partitions.
