About the Author
Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) is the great visionary poet whose idiosyncratic style, intense inner life, and eternally questioning mind make her one of the most fascinating and beloved American writers and the perfect medium for this divination deck. A "passenger of infinity," Dickinson contemplated the "little Mysteries" that "harass us - like Life - and Death" and came up with these breathtakingly ethereal answers. David Trinidad is the author of more than twenty books of poetry, collaborations, and edited volumes. Among them are Swinging on a Star, Notes on a Past Life, and Dear Prudence: New and Selected Poems. Winner of a Lambda Literary Award and finalist for the Lenore Marshall Poetry Prize, he is a professor of poetry at Columbia College, Chicago.
