William Luce's play "The Belle of Amherst" delicately explores the life of America's greatest woman poet at various stages of her experience from the age of 15, when she was full of hope and success, until she died at age 56, a virtual recluse with her door closed against society. Her life is recreated with liveral excerpts from her poetry - and with Emily herself playing roles of her father, teacher, and friends.
