Event Details

A Quiet Passion plus Q+A | Electric Palace

A Quiet Passion is an exceptional film with a searing central performance from Cynthia Nixon. The film will be followed by a Q&A with Dr Paraic Finnerty on Dickinson: Quietly Public and Passionately Private. Páraic is Reader in English and American Literature at the University of Portsmouth. He is the author of Emily Dickinson’s Shakespeare (2006) and co-author of Victorian Celebrity Culture and Tennyson’s Circle (2013).

His next book, Dickinson and her British Contemporaries, is forthcoming from Edinburgh University Press. Emily Dickinson’s Shakespeare (2006), examines Shakespeare’s reception in nineteenth-century America and locates Dickinson’s allusions to his writings in this context.

His second book, Dickinson and her British Contemporaries, will explore connections between Dickinson’s writings and the poetry of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Robert Browning, Alfred Tennyson, the Brontës, and George Eliot. In 2012, he was awarded an AHRC Early Career Fellowship to facilitate the completion of this project.

He is a member of the Board of Directors of the Emily Dickinson International Society and serves on the Editorial Board of the Emily Dickinson Journal. He is also involved in CSL’s Victorian Literary Heritage project.
