First published in 1967, this play presents the life of Emily Dickinson through her letters, poems, and memories of her family members.

Mister Johnson by Norman Rosten( Book )

5 editions published between 1955 and 1997 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Johnson, a young native in the British civil service, is a clerk to Rudbeck, Assistant District Officer in Nigeria, and imagines himself to be a very important cog of the King's government. He is amusingly tolerant of his fellow Africans, thinking them uncivilized. Johnson loves the white man's ways and cheerily adopts them; he has enthusiasm that makes his boss Rudbeck overlook his rather vague office talents. This enthusiasm centers especially upon the construction of a road, and when Rudbeck had difficulty in getting funds from HQ, Johnson does some manipulation with the books. His peculiar sense of bookkeeping, together with his disdain for regulations, lands him in trouble. He gets the road built but is discharged. In despair and anger at being fired by his 'good friend' Rudbeck, he gets drunk, and accidentally kills a white store owner. He is condemned to death. Rudbeck tries to save him, but 'justice' cannot be reversed. Johnson is caught between two cultures, belonging no more to the new Africa than to the old. He begs Rudbeck, whom he looks upon as a father, to shoot him rather than let him be hanged by a stranger. Rudbeck grants this last request and ends the boy's life.-- Publisher description
