My partially cracked poetess.

I only read the New Yorker online.  Sometimes.  The siren call of a review of an Emily Dickinson biography, reviewed by Judith Thurman, illustrated by Maira Kalman is to0 seductive to be ignored.

"Among them are some of the greatest (poems) ever written in English, but an English unique to her- an unworn language."
