"Cartography" is greater than a metaphor for him, it is a approach of being. it really is how we reside on the earth, and the way intimacy enriches such residing. but "cartography" is the presiding metaphor, the constitution of this booklet; in giving it one of these position, Dickinson reminds the reader of that very human impulse to plan, to visualize. every one poem is itself one of those mapping, via language and sound, via minute remark, until eventually land, love, and daily life are given new embodiment, are newly stumbled on, and a reader reveals new international locations in surprisingly popular settings.
