Throughout the Series
In The Future never spoke, Emily and Lavinia travel to the future and encounter none other than Sylvia Plath who informs them that Emily Dickinson’s house usually isn’t open at this time. In 1955, which is Sylvia’s present, women attend college, detest corsets and wear pants! Sylvia believes Emily and Vinnie dabble in method acting, hence the 1862 clothing. The trio then enters Emily’s now 100-year-old home. Sylvia takes Vinnie and Emily to the latter’s bedroom, which looks vastly different from a century earlier. Emily further learns that in 1955, her poetry lives beyond her room, and even Sylvia derives inspiration from her. Sylvia also addresses a book previously published which reveals Emily’s love of women, which Emily tries to deny.
