Bastian Lecture: Jed Deppman on Emily Dickinson
Bastian Lecture: Jed Deppman on Emily Dickinson

Trying to Live with Emily Dickinson
Centre’s English Program sponsors the annual Bastian Lecture, honoring the late Carol Bastian. This year’s speaker is Jed Deppman, Professor of Comparative Literature and English at Oberlin College. His lecture, titled “Trying to Live with Emily Dickinson,” explains how to have a meaningful death, and by association, how to have a meaningful life.
 
Cultural historians of Civil War America have documented the ways in which the late-medieval tradition of the ars moriendi — the art of dying well — sought to preserve traditional meanings and values in a time of unprecedented chaos and loss. Placed in this context, Emily Dickinson’s poems can be read as her own lifelong attempt to work out a personal ars moriendi. Did she, at the same time, produce an ars vivendi? Can her writings help us understand and act upon the choices that shape our lives as well as our deaths?
