Dickinson Emily received some terrible medical news, which kicked off the second season and had the opportunity to share her poems with the world.
Friday’s premiere begins with a history lesson. The narrator tells us that after Sue and Austin got married, the details of Emily Dickinson’s real life are sketchy, maybe we can only find the truth in her poems . Emily is still writing to Sue, who now lives next door to Austin. But when her vision became blurred and painful, her father took her to a doctor who was not very sympathetic. (When she said that she was writing the article, he told her: “You may want to stop doing a lot of things.”
On the way home from the train, Emily’s father murmured about the huge doctor’s bill. She told him, “I’m sorry it’s so expensive.” He assured her that the real problem was Austin. He made a fortune in his new house with Su, and then the market bottomed out. When he walked away, a strange man approached Emily and he said to her, “I am not alone. Who are you?” She firmly believed that he looked familiar, but he left without saying his name- When her father returned, the man disappeared.Ok
At the same time, Lavinia’s mother accepted a new boarder: Mr. Shipley, the former lady of Lavinia has a beautiful head. (“What the hell is happening now?” Lavinia wants to know.) Shipley boasted that he was very successful in selling medicines, but he plans to marry Lavinia. He is looking for traditional girls who show “submissiveness, chastity and willingness to do housework”. Lavinia insisted that it wasn’t her-and proved it by falling him to the bed and installing him. Ok!
When Emily and her father returned home, her mother was troubled by her grim diagnosis: “Why does this happen to me?” Lavinia wanted to gossip, but Emily Running upstairs and writing: “My thoughts are full of thoughts.” (Her father warned her to pay attention to her eyes, but she was not afraid of it.) Lavinia was very happy to attend one of Austin and Sue’s wonderful parties tonight , Because there are too many topics about them. She added: “Sue is an influential person.” Newspaper editor and emerging media mogul Samuel Bowles will be there. Emily tried to write, but the noise of the party next door made it impossible. Her maid quipped: “It sounds like they are doing all the latest fixtures.”
At the party, Sue dressed in disguise to hold the courtroom, and Mr. Shipley marveled at the oysters. (Lavinia sighed (“Oysters are actually a cheap and easily available food,” oysters.) Shipley sent a cordial greeting to Austin and told him that he and Lavinia were “engaged.” “…Even if she never agreed. The vicious group of acquaintances with Emily was there, declaring that Ralph Waldo Emerson had been “cancelled” and pitying poor Jane because she was The child’s widow. Emily finally put down her handwriting, her face was covered with ink, and went to the party. Sue tried to help her wipe it off, but Emily didn’t care about her appearance: “I’m seeing you here.”
She asked to know what Sue thought about her poems. Sue said she was better than ever… but it was too much for her: “Your poems… they make me feel that I don’t want to feel it.” It reminded her of her recent miscarriage, she has not told Austin yet. Sue wants Emily to meet Sam Bowles and thinks that he might publish her poem in his newspaper, which should have been long ago: “I’m no longer you The only reader of it.” When prompted, Sam appeared, calling Sue “Suzie” and bragging about his travel casually. He doesn’t know anything about Emily’s poems and wants to hear one. But when Sue encouraged her to read a poem aloud at the party, Emily said “not tonight” and went out. (She also caught a glimpse of the “nobody” guy. Was he a ghost or something?) When she came home, she turned back and saw Sam watching her leave. We guess these two will meet again, right?
