For all lovers of Emily Dickinson’s poetry this is a must.  Like the poet herself most of the action takes place within the Dickinson’s family home in Massachusetts.  Initially her life is full of laughter and sharp repartee with her friend Vryling Buffam.  Eventually the situation changes as her health deteriorates and she becomes increasingly reclusive.  Suffering, it seems, is so often part of a poet’s condition.
