Season 3[]

In This is my letter to the World, Emily Dickinson imagines herself at a war hospital meeting Walt Whitman, as well as reuniting with Louisa May Alcott. In her hallucination, Walt seems to be obsessed with the grandeur of war moreso than saving lives. But it’s more than Emily can claim to be doing, so she takes his lead and follows him into the party. In the glamorous function, they take shots and get in touch with Emily’s feelings. This, of course, ends with her shouting out her declaration of love for Sue Gilbert.
