Newest twist on image of Emily Dickinson

Poet Emily Dickinson & Maid Margaret Maher c.1870

Here’s our take on the brand new photo of Emily Dickinson!

It’s of Emily at about age 28 with her immigrant maid Margaret Maher at about age 30.

Theses two shared the Dickinson kitchen for 17 years. What did they talk about when they made a loaf cake together? What else passed between them as Margaret washed a plate and handed it to Emily to dry?

Find out in Maid as Muse.
