Many of the poems retell the tales of the Brothers Grimm from the perspectives of minor characters, such as the huntsman from Little Red Riding Hood, the witch from Rapunzel, and the woodcutter’s wife from Hansel and Gretel.

Others look at the stories of popular characters in a fresh light.Who knew that a poet would come by one day and reanimate the ancient, tragic fairytale figures of Little Red Riding Hood and Rapunzel? And that she would not only reanimate those uneasy ghosts stalking the roots of memory, but also the ghostly plants and animals of the world that devoured and mourned them? Well, she has: it’s Mary McMyne, with her flute of life, blowing healing air into archetypal pain. One by one her ancestral victims rise from the cannibal fog of our oldest past to live in these marvelous prose-poetry stereopticons.

Stories to be truly chilled by, wolf hair by wolf hair.Andrei Codrescu, author of So Recently Rent a World: New and Selected Poems, 1968-2012In these poems, at the nexus of science and mythology, Mary McMyne delicately dissects wolf, butterfly and crocus with the same careful intensity. Wolf Skin entrances even as it invites us into a world of princes-turned-hedgehog, mothers who disappear, and characters skeptical of their stories. One poem begs, Huntsman, leave us, like stones in the wolf’s belly, without memory… but this is a collection you will return to and remember.Jeannine Hall Gailey, author of Unexplained Fevers and Becoming the VillainessEnter the wood, dark and wild, the trees that bend, sings a voice from Mary McMyne’s quiet, powerful poems, and the enchantment begins.

In the rich textures of her work dwells the terrible beauty of trapped things—a butterfly behind glass- a daughter within her mother’s memory- and a girl, always a girl, in a tower, in a wood, in a wolf. As these figures say their names, they tell, too, the price of liberation from—and into—story.

Enter these poems, and know their hungers. Some of them will call to you, like the red-capped child in The Girl Who Came Before who says, It is time for us to drown./ It is time for us to touch the moon. Some of these poems you may never leave.Sally Rosen Kindred, author of No Eden and Book of Astershttps://dulcetshop.myshopify.com/prod...http://www.marymcmyne.com
