Eurydice Sings is a collection of feminist speculative poetry featuring heroines and goddesses from familiar and newly-forged myths and fairy-tales. In these pages kitsunes prowl, snow brides refuse to melt, Red Riding Hood's grandmother reveals her unorthodox history, and Isis revels in a mortal love--on her own terms, while Orpheus' muse gets her chance to do more than simply inspire.
Read this lovely review by poet Marianne Szlyk at her literary blog: TheSongIs
“Are you ready to earn the crimson hood? For those of us who cut our teeth on fairy tales and myths as children, the taste for them never really goes away. Our appetites only grow more complex—a need to dig deeper, to shred skins that no longer suit, to get to the marrow. From fox-skinned girls and feathered queens to enduring ghosts and goddesses, Sandi Leibowitz shows us the familiar in new and often uncomfortable ways. We see our sisters and ourselves here, and we wrestle with the need to speak (or sing, or scream) our truths. Deliciously transgressive, EURYDICE SINGS gives voice to the primal, the vengeful, and the hungry at the heart of our beloved stories.”
