In Memoriam, J.f.k.

December 2023
1min read

At first I was astonished that The Magazine of History had chosen so personal an expression of grief as Emily Dickinson’s poem. But I soon saw it was a perfect choice, for one of the most incredible features of this terrible and incredible business is that so many of us feel so personal a sorrow for a man we never laid eyes on.

We hope you enjoy our work.
