Emily Dickinson && Poetry

I’m in American Romanticism and we are reading Emily Dickinson and discussed in class about how to read the poems.

Our professor suggested to read any of her poems with the tune of Yellow Rose of Texas [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5R9O8ph2D0[/youtube]

Good news, after she played the tune over and over again, it worked when we read the lines!

Since we are talking about poetry, I thought this might be a relevant blog post 🙂
