"There's a certain slant of light/ winter afternoons/ That oppresses/ like the heft of cathedral tunes." Emily Dickinson's heavy lines create the mood for the Monterey Video release, Emily Dickinson: A Certain Slant of Light. Hosted by classical actress Julie Harris, the video explores the life of the tragic poet. It runs a mere 29 minutes and features the real-life surroundings of the "Belle of Amherst."
