A mythic figure in American letters, Emily Dickinson preferred the company of books and plants to that of people. She refused to make her poetry public and spent her later years cloistered in her bedroom, leaving us to piece together the paper scraps of her work and her life.

Yet Dominique Fortier is able to imagine fleeting moments of the elusive poet, quick glimpses before she ducks behind a door or disappears into her garden, to show her struggles to reconcile spirit and flesh. Through reflections on language and what it feels like to be home, Paper Houses brings Dickinson vividly to life, with whimsy and irreverence, as if reanimating a flower once pressed in the pages of her notebook.
