There isn't a lot known about the life of Emily Dickinson, so Rosanna Bruno invents one based on what we do know. She also imagines what this poet might be doing in our modern age, so there are OKCupid, Yelp and other social media pages. There is a review of her house as an airbnb. There is fictional early school work and correspondence. There are lots of references to birds and death.
But there are also phrases from the works of Emily Dickinson woven in as well. Initially, I thought this was going to be a snarky take on a misunderstood person from an older time, but by the end, I felt like it was done in tribute and with affection. Perhaps this will create new poetry fans.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Andrews McMeel Publishing and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
Each page is largely an illustration to fit in with a line or section of poetry. The illustrations are black and white pencil drawings or scribbles that really fit with this type of book. If you are a student of Dickinson, someone who has knowledge of her personal life, this book will tickle your fancy, if not, you might have difficulty "getting it". Thanks to the publisher for providing me a copy of this book via Netgalley.
