Our tour guide, Greg, was both informative and engaging. More than just a 90 min lecture, the tour includes info about Dickinson's 19th c. Amherst, literary lights of her time, a participatory discussion of how her poetry fits in with others of her time. The Evergreens (her brother's home next door) provides a fascinating look at late 19th c. daily life: art and decor, kitchen, dining room, nursery. The Dickinson family is buried about a mile away at West Cemetery, which is fascinating in its own right. Definitely worth the visit!
