    A movie based on a book of poems: 'Tar' stars James Franco, of course

     Emily Dickinson's 'Gorgeous Nothings' shows the poet's hand
    In 2012, a daguerreotype surfaced that was thought to be of a midlife Emily Dickinson, causing an Internet frenzy. As far as we (the frenzied) knew, there was only one known photographic image of the poet. That 1847 picture, taken when she was 16, is...
