Resistance and Transformation: On Fairy Tales, forthcoming from Aqueduct Press.
Through Immortal Shadows Singing. April 2017, Papaveria Press. A novella-length epic poem about Helen of Troy.
From the opening line ‘My mother taught me the use of drugs …’ the reader is swept up in this enthralling re-telling of a classic tale, winding their way through a landscape carved from the mythology of the ancients. Ness brings this landscape to life with a quality of writing not usually witnessed in a writer’s debut effort. Fresh and inventive in her use of metaphor and imagery, Ness submerges the reader in Helen’s story of love and glory….Comparisons to Milton and Sappho aside, I cannot stress how impressed I am with this novella.
