I’m reading a paper entitled, “Emily Dickenson: Get a Life.”

In S1E8, Lorelai sneaks downstairs at night to listen to a voicemail that Max left. In his message, he says, “It’s now 2 o’clock in the afternoon on Thursday, and I’m in my office grading a paper entitled, ‘Emily Dickinson: Get a Life.'”

Emily Dickinson was a classic American poet who was known to be extremely introverted. She stayed at home most of her adult life due to her mother’s illness, her own agoraphobia, and simply to care for her house. Dickinson was known to speak to people from behind doors and didn’t even attend her father’s memorial service. Her prolific writing was mostly unknown until it was discovered after her death.
