Notes:
Susan sits by the ashes of a fire, mourning the loss of her husband Austin’s sister: Emily Dickinson. Before her death, Emily asked her own sister, Lavinia, to burn everything—her letters and poems—and while Lavinia has already burned the letters, Emily’s poems remain intact. Many questions are left unanswered about Emily’s life and work—including the identity of the mysterious Master who appears throughout her work—and Susan (and Emily herself) must contend with the meaning of Emily Dickinson’s legacy.
