This was a very interesting story. In the story, it talks about a woman named Emily who never really leaves her house; people actually call her "the myth" because no one really ever sees her. All you know about her is that she writes poetry. One day, a little girl and her mother get an invitation to go play music for Emily and the little girl actually gets to meet her. Once you get to the end of the story, you realize it's actually about Emily Dickinson, the famous poet. I had thought it might be about her in the beginning, but I just thought the way the story was told was very interesting. I really enjoyed it.
