More than just a clever joke, The Emily Dickinson Reader is an insightful look at Emily Dickinson’s work and a wise work of poetry its own right. Through his “translations,” Legault reveals a darker and funnier Dickinson than we might have assumed, while creating a strange synthesis work shining with its own kind of brilliance. This is how he translates poem 432 ““I cannot write people back to life. As hard as I might try. And I do. Furiously. Like a wizard. Or a grammarian.”
