March 23, 2018

Set against the cultural milieu of the 1980s, See the Wolftells the story of violence against women and girls through retold traditional fairytale and myth as well as the specific narrative of a single mother and her two daughters fighting to define their own lives.  See the Wolf looks unflinchingly at sexual objectification and the uses of gender stereotype, physical threat, violence, and predation to control woman and girls.  “What are the chances,” it asks.  “that a man who flashes his teeth when he talks / doesn’t bite?”  Always sensitive to the dangers of their surroundings, trained to flee or to flight, these women ultimately refuse the role of victim being forced on them and instead take ownership of their narrative, as they learn “To fear is animal. / To create out of fear must be human-“

 

 

 

In lines both disruptive and alluring, See the Wolf startles us back into the skin of our adolescent selves.  These poems dazzle and sear, rocketing through the dark expanse of our collective girlhood.  It's scary stuff, but so gloriously lit that we stare when we know we should be running away.             - Karyna McGlynn
