Overview

The Master Letters by Lucie Brock-Broido

The title of this richly textured book derives from two of the three mysterious letters left by Emily Dickinson--the ones addressed to "Dear Master." Lucie Brock-Boido has imagined a series of letters echoing devices found in Dickinson's own work. "We feel we are in the presence of something entirely new, " says Bonnie Costello in The Boston Review. "Not even Brock-Broido's wonderful first book, A Hunger, prepares us for this bold encounter."

Why do some poets continue to get published when they take shortcuts? Shortcuts in the form of abstraction. There is so much beauty in the world, where didn't she go wrong?
