July Poetry Book Club Book -- Averno by Louise Gluck



After reading through all the descriptions of the books, I've decided to choose Averno by Louise Gluck for this month's Poetry Book Club book.

I'm interested in this book because it focuses on the Persephone myth, a verdant myth for feminist poets. I've read other books that explore this same myth, such as Rita Dove's amazing book Mother Love. I'm interested to see how the book compares.

As I've mentioned earlier, I'll post a conversation post on July 24, so that we may compare notes. Happy reading!
