I Stepped from Plank to Plank by Emily Dickinson

LibriVox logo LibriVox volunteers bring you 13 recordings of I Stepped from Plank to Plank by Emily Dickinson(1830-1886). This was the Weekly Poetry project for Aug 21st to Aug 28th, 2011.

Emily Elizabeth Dickinson was an American poet. Born in Amherst, Massachusetts, to a successful family with strong community ties, she lived a mostly introverted and reclusive life. Thought of as an eccentric by the locals, she became known for her penchant for white clothing and her reluctance to greet guests or, later in life, even leave her room. Most of her friendships were therefore carried out by correspondence.( Summary by Wikipedia)
