Poetry. Mary Alexandra Agner's THE DOORS OF THE BODY travels through ancient Greek mythology to more recent folk tales to ascertain and exclaim in the vatic, sometimes fierce voices of women: Athena, Gretel, Sleeping Beauty and even darling Clementine. Rangy originality and deep curiosity drive these poems into unexpected places. Its insightful reimaginings and scrupulous investitures of archetypes and myths are depth-redemptive, and invoke us to fresh encounters with the repressed energies of nature and time.
