‘Dickinson’ in reality, it had political commentary parallel to those of today


Although it has taken a little more on gain traction, the programs of Apple TV + are pretty good. In the beginning he had a lot of success with The Morning Show, but others also have more and more fans. Dickinson is one of them and tells a story fun and modern on the life of the poet Emily Dickinson. Hailee Steinfeld portrays the famous poet, and is immersed in their family relationships, their points of view about life as a woman author at the time, and also on its rarity that it is not scanned so often. Because it offers a kind of modern day account, also has some political talks in parallel to the current climate.

The dialogue in “Dickinson” really dug in “centrist democrats” in the current political climate

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the showrunner and writer of the program, Alena Smith, spoke about many things related to the program. From the major moments of the first season to what the future holds, Smith gave the fans much to look forward to and reflect on. One of them is the story of the father of Emily.

Near the middle of the season, his father, Edward, is running for office and openly talk about “Know-Nothings”, which is a party based on the “economic rhetoric and populist anxiety nativist”. Basically they blame immigrants for anything that goes wrong in the community. While it may seem that this is a excavation for Trump in the political sphere today, it is not only him.

“I think that even more, in reality it is an excavation for the centrist democrats that have been thought to have been good in protecting this country, when obviously what they have been doing has not worked,” said Smith. “There is a feeling that the center cannot hold, and this liberalism simplistic and elitist it is not.”

Emily is not afraid to talk with your father, or any other person, about his political affiliation and opinions. That makes it admirable and possibly identifiable, and it is interesting to see how the wider policy of his father plays so well with the modern.

The Civil War is going to happen in “Dickinson”, and that event is also parallel to the current discourse

The real life-Dickinson died in 1886 at the age of 55 years, which means that it had more than 30 years during the Civil War. It was the most devastating war that the united States has seen up to that point, and the program immerses himself in the role he played in your life. Although Smith said that the season 2 ends right before that begins, there are many things ahead of time. Again, also related to the modern times.

“In the years prior to the Civil War, there was a sense of a country divided into two sides that could not live among themselves, and unfortunately it seems that we are coming to a place very similar to our policy at this time.” Smith Said.

Edward Dickinson was a Whig, and is very much in favor of holding together the Union.

“More or less for the sake of boosting the business, so that there is a sort of platform of business as usual is no longer good enough,” he said about his reasoning. “It is not increasing up to the moment.”

In terms of where is stops the 2 season, Smith also shared that. She shared that if it is renewed for a third season, definitely cover it completely.

“We came to the edge,” he said. “The season accumulates until the event of Harpers Ferry, the John Brown’s raid at Harpers Ferry, we are imagining in our program as a moment of September 11, or a time in which war becomes inevitable, and the society that has held together up to now know that is not going to work “.

The second season will focus on the relationship of Emily with the fame

Season 1 went into any detail about the fixation of Dickinson on death, even personificándolo with rapper Wiz Khalifa. Now, season 2 will focus on the fame.

“Emily had a relationship deeply ambivalent fame”, shared Smith. “The second season has to do with the fame and the economy of attention, which was a central concern in the poems of Emily Dickinson”.

Has not yet been set a release date, but it was filmed prior to the closing of Hollywood due to the coronavirus. Therefore, there is the possibility that it debuts at the end of the year.

Dickinson was obsessed with fame, even if she was fleeing from her. Smith shared that the season will also focus on the concept of being a “nobody” and choose to be. “What would it mean to choose to be anonymous, be invisible, not to be seen and what kind of power there is in being a nobody?” Smith Said.

It seems that, with most of the things that portrays Dickinson, the relationship of Emily with the fame going to take a modern spin. There may be a parallel with the culture of influence, or a link with Thoreau, John Mullaney or Alcott of Zosia Mamet. Thoreau fled into the wilderness to escape his fame and Alcott embraced her in exchange for the money that both want for their work. Whatever the case, it will be a great follow-up from the first season of Dickinson.
