The Belle of Amherst
Julie Harris reprises her Tony Award-winning Broadway role as 19th century American poet Emily Dickinson in this one-woman interpretation of the great literary figure's life. Against the backdrop of Dickinson's 19th century Amherst, Mass., home, Harris declaims from the reclusive poet's poems, letters and diaries to offer a delicate portrait of the artist as both a real human being and long-suffering genius.
