Abstract

"Her Still Singing Limbs: A Collection of Poetry" is a fragmented rumination on the intrinsic loneliness of the human condition. Using the Greek myth of Echo’s destruction at her beloved Narcissus’s hands as the foundation, these poems combine voyeuristic images of beauty and violence to explain why all poets write "songs of exquisite loneliness."
