The Voice at the Door
by James Sulzer
The Voice at the Door recreates the fateful meeting of Emily Dickinson with the famous Philadelphia pastor, Charles Wadsworth. The fictional account weaves the letters and poems of this iconic American writer into a rich tapestry of intellectual and spiritual communion. It encompasses the three great mysteries of Emily Dickinson’s life: her agonized love poetry of the early 1860’s, her partial blindness in 1863 – 1865, and her subsequent withdrawal from the world.
