From behind the familiar depiction of Medusa?the snake-haired Gorgon whose gaze can turn you to stone?another story is emerging, of an ancient injustice, of the head dominating the body, of modern knowledge overcoming ageless wisdom.
Monique Chénier has given us a contemporary poetic retelling of one of the most enduring and unsettling myths in the western tradition. On facing pages, in alternating classical Sapphic fragments and contemporary prose poetry, Medusa "re-members" herself and ushers us into a story long forgotten.
