About this title

Synopsis:

This collection of imagist poems combines mythology, archaeology, and translation. Susan Hawthorne draws on the history and prehistory of Rome and its neighbors to explore how the past is remembered. Under the guidance of Curatrix, Director of the Musæum Matricum, and Latin poet, Sulpicia, travelers Diana and Agnese are led through the mythic archives about wolves and sheep before attending an epoch-breaking party to which they are invited by Empress Livia. An enticing tapestry of real and imaginary texts that gladden the readers’ hearts, Lupa and Lamb is poet Susan Hawthorne at her best.
