Hunks review literary classics

Read Hunk Lit, the latest from the incomparable David Barringer:

THE COLLECTED POETRY OF EMILY DICKINSON

“A lawyer’s daughter and a fierce recluse in her forties, Emily [1830-86] was a writer of startling originality. Her work revisits themes of fame, death and immortality, which as an actor I can relate to. While her language is cryptic, elliptical and sometimes self-dramatizing, her poetry is always compelling, uncompromising and moving. Sure, sometimes I didn’t get it, but that’s how it is with art. That’s how it’s been with a lot of the movies I’ve been in anyway.”
–Tom Cruise
