Summary

A “roman poetique” on Emily Dickinson, written by a contemporary poet. The author intertwines her real story (her stay in Boston for a while, her relationship with her own house, her personal pain for the death of a sister). At the center of the book is Emily. The fil rouge is the house and the feeling of being at home.
