Editorial Reviews


Among the Goddesses is a bold experiment.  Magical, mystical, musical, it charts a woman's journey that reverses the journey of Odysseus.  What is it to be aided by goddesses, if we are women?  What is it to face death, and to cause death?  How do we become ourselves?   "Isis, Astarte, Diana, Hecate, Demeter, Kali, Innanna"  may be the mileposts of any woman's journey toward freedom.”


—Alicia Ostriker, author of No Heaven and The Book of Seventy


Among the Goddesses is Annie Finch’s push toward the creation of a monumental work-of-art, an opera as totalartwork & as a vibrant mix of theater & epic.  In her personal version/vision of these now resuscitated goddesses she ventures beyond the limits of the lyric/confessional mode too long assigned to poetry.  And what’s even better: she sings it out loud as a litany of sounded/clashing dactyls & classical/classy repetitions & choruses, enough to carry any reader, she or he, who wants to go there.  Where?  Into that genuinely mythic place, the home of poetry & prophecy, where she affirms her artistry & dares us to hear & share her vision.”

—Jerome Rothenberg

Format: Paperback
The Spirit of femininity is as old as women are. "Among the Goddesses" is a blend of epic poem and Libretto, as Annie Finch tells the story of Marie and Lily as they experience all the tragedy and triumph that comes with womanhood, looking to the mother goddesses that predate Christianity for guidance in the most trying of times. Driven and powerful writing in play format, "Among the Goddesses" is an excellent read and a first pick for literary fiction and poetry collections.
