Video of “Because I could not stop for Death” by Emily Dickinson

 

Another sensitive and ingenious adaptation of one of my poetry comics by Jim Avis. This time it’s the celebrated Emily Dickinson poem, “Because I could not stop for Death.” The reading is by the great Cynthia Nixon. The comics adaptation, along with 23 others, can be found in my new book, Poems to See By: A Comic Artist Interprets Great Poetry (Plough Publishing): https://www.plough.com/en/topics/culture/poetry/poems-to-see-by

    One mistake in the reading . It’s gazing grain, not grazing grain.

    Absolutely excellent interpretation of Emily Dickenson’s work. I have the “Poems To See By” book, which I LOVE. I am a teacher, and will be using the book and the video in class.
