Modern English

Because Emily Dickinson could not stop for death, she’s making an appearance to celebrate her own work. This is excellent news for the poet Paul Legault, the man behind translating Dickinson’s 1,789-poem collection into modern, one-liners in The Emily Dickinson Reader. At the Emily Dickinson After Party commemorating his book’s publication, Legault takes the surreal opportunity to swap verses with his muse (played by Mendy St. Ours) before he deejays at the ensuing dance party. Victorian dress and a fascination with morbidity and hyphenation are strongly encouraged.

Friday 3/22 Free, 8pm. The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative, 209 Monticello Rd. 984-5669.
