Jennifer McGowan’s new collection With Paper for Feet will be launched by Arachne Press in Oxford on Friday 03/03/2017 at 7.30 at the Albion Beatnik Bookstore.
About the collection: With Paper for Feet is themed and narrative, drawing together Jennifer A. McGowan’s poetry of myth and folktale, and the frailties – human and otherwise – behind them. With Paper for Feet explores, mostly from a female perspective, the guts it takes to live or – often -die, un-heroically. her characters laugh, argue, complain, suffer, curse, aware that more is expected of them, but unwilling to play up. Jennifer explores many voices including the women of Troy & many of Shakespeare’s characters, as well as poems based in other cultures including France, Africa & China.
