Making Curriculum Pop

I teach in a high poverty, rural school and I am getting ready to teach Dickinson and Whitman to my 11th grade classes. Any ideas for making these two fabulous poets POP! I thought about focusing on Dickinson's obsession with death and Whitman's sexuality because these are always interesting to teens, but I fear homophobia would become a focus for my students.

Perfection has a great text on the Harlem Renaissance that touches on the genre about the time.
Another area to talk about is ED's seasonal disorder affliction. There was an article in Time or Newsweek a couple of years ago that was short and would pique considerable interest. You might try and find the article.
