Written at the tender age of 14, this collection of poems uses the form of haunted fairy tales and fantasies to rearrange and reanimate expectations and prejudices. Bird’s work transcends her generation, hovering between ages. Manipulating cliches and aphorisms, her verse restructures expectations of innocence and adulthood. These poems both starkly redefine gender roles and twist the languages with which generations communicate.
Caroline Bird is 14 years old and is preparing for graduate school. She lives in Leeds, England.
