These old houses

A friend of mine passed along this link to a feature on the NYTimes arts blog.  Apparently, Emily Dickinson’s house is sadly in need of repair.  It’s amazing how much an old house can do for the memory of a writer or a certain period of writing.  The Edgar Allan Poe house is my favorite example of this on 7th and Spring Garden Streets in Philadelphia (for more on Poe, check out this blog).  I’m waiting for when the MFA program can get a really nice house–maybe one of the historical houses on James Street.  But that’s the dream.
