The Sacking of the Muses

The Sacking of the Muses

By Susan Hawthorne



Muses have been sacked' their role in the pantheon, sold up for some new, real estate venture. When the Muses are sacked, what are we to do? The Muses who inspire poetry, astronomy, history and daily living bring their song and dance into present-day political struggles. These Muses are for rebellion.Susan Hawthornes poems span millennia of resistance by women. The earth itself is implicated. She writes about womens bodies, how they are used, abused and celebrated in birthing, in sexual pleasure, in grief, in imagining. She draws on stories from ancient and contemporary India, from Greece and Rome, through language, storytelling and translation. we embrace our double lives, like actors and their alter egos, some say sle?a is unnatural, Ive heard the same said about us
