Description

'I started Early - Took my dog -
And visited the Sea -
The Mermaids in the Basement
Came out to look at me - '

In this intriguing poem, the reclusive and mysterious Emily Dickinson imagines a trip to the sea amid curious mermaids and salacious seamen.

Our lesson plan asks students first to consider Dickinson's particular use of dashes and capital letters, then focuses on one interpretation of the poem. It ends with students comparing Dickinson's use of the sea in this poem and 'Wild Nights'.
