Tony Bates geeft sir John Daniel de gelegenheid om een boek over massive open online courses te bespreken. Op basis van deze review concludeer ik dat de auteur een mooi overzicht geeft van deze ontwikkeling, maar geen nieuwe inzichten toevoegt.

The Revelatory Paper Trails of Emily Dickinson and Sylvia Plath

 

Indeed, art soothed Plath’s otherwise white-hot personality. “It gives me such a sense of peace to draw; more than prayer, walks, anything,” she wrote to Hughes (aka “dearest darling Teddy”) in a letter from October 1956, four months into their marriage. “I can close myself completely in the line, lose myself in it.” Hughes echoed this salve-like quality of the pen in a late poem: “Drawing calmed you…you drew doggedly on, arresting details/Till you had the whole scene imprisoned.” For such an auditory writer—she once told the BBC that her verses were “written for the ear, not the eye: They are poems written out loud,” possessed of a “deep mathematical inevitability,” as Hughes noted in his preface to her Collected Poems—Plath seemed to get a great stimulus from forms, colors, and lines. In another interview, Plath declared, “I have a visual imagination. For instance, my inspiration is paintings and not music when I go to some other art form … I see these things very clearly.”

Trove of Emily Dickinson manuscripts to appear online

Trove of Emily Dickinson manuscripts to appear online | Humanities in general | Scoop.it

"Emily Dickinson was well known for her reluctance to publish her work. Only a smattering of her poems appeared in print during her lifetime, anonymously and likely without her knowledge. A fellow author scolded her for her reticence: “You are a great poet — and it is a wrong to the day you live in, that you will not sing aloud.” • Now, Harvard will sing aloud for Dickinson. This week, the university plans to roll out the Emily Dickinson Archive that digitally gathers, for the first time in one place, all surviving Dickinson autograph manuscripts and letters, along with contemporary transcripts of Dickinson poems that did not survive in autograph. The website says the aim is to provide a resource from which scholarship can be produced. • The development of the digital collection has not been without bumps and resentments — many rooted in the conflicts over ownership of Dickinson’s work that date to the late 19th century and reflect the deep and abiding fervor that her work inspires."
