dc.description.abstract Drawing from the perhaps antithetical languages provided by myth and science, the poems in this collection examine how women become socially constructed through cultural narratives. Toward this end, the poems questions women’s bodies as culturally scripted boundaries by reimagining Greco-Roman myths of bodily transformation. At times, this questioning occurs through a contemporary speaker’s relationship with her scientist father as she seeks to understand different modes of knowledge and the consequences of these modes on how we establish connection to others, the world, and ourselves. Underlying these themes rests the question of how language and utterance form the boundary of a gendered body.
