"...Glass-encased, what mattered / after ever after but that apple, / his kisses, the cost of the fruit. (from "What Was It To Snow White?"). No one writes like Wendy Taylor Carlisle. Wendy's voice is so much her own. She writes bold, captivating poetry. This collection shares archetypal figures from Greek mythology, fairy tales, and modern screen Idols. Delicious use of language.

Format: Paperback
I picked this up and read it straight through, then read it again, then again, noticing more each time—more to think about, more to feel, more to understand—about mythology, fable, popular culture.... There’s not much any writer can do to elaborate on ancient tales, except, like Carlisle, to delve so deep into the human psyche that the characters become real—real enough to seem like people we know, even real enough to seem like us ourselves. If you want to read some fresh and edgy poems about gods and goddesses, buy this book! Wendy Taylor Carlisle covers everything from holy to Hollywood in these twenty poems—she is a meticulous poet with a lively, honest voice, a brilliant wit, and, obviously, a heart that understands myth and the people who have created it.

Format: Paperback
Wendy Taylor Carlisle re-imagines well known myths and our
Americanized fairy tales (and after all, what is a Disney princess but
a myth?) Spellbindingly told in the voices of real and, dare I say,
even feminist women, her poems point out the painful truth: take away
the princes, the magic spells, the dragons and epic adventures and
nothing's really changed, Past and present, all of life really comes
down to love, loss, and laundry.
