About Because I Could Not Stop

Emily Dickinson was a woman ahead of her time. While she produced some of the most haunting and visionary poetry in the American cannon, she refused to be confined by the expectations of a 19th century woman. Using her own words, ERC's "Because I Could Not Stop" explores the inner life of an artist whose intellectual curiosity and emotional intensity are only rivaled by her fierce defiance of literary and social authority.
