Women of Fire and Bloodby Lili Bita, Robert Zaller
In Women of Fire and Blood, Lili Bita reimagines Medea, Helen of Troy, and other archetypal heroines of antiquity through a modern feminist sensibility. These poems, with their lyric directness and force and their powerful erotic candor, are a distinctive addition to the work of one of today's most important Greek poets.
