Description


Part of our revived "Poetry Pamphlet Series", All the Helens of Troy is Bernadette Mayers's profile of all of the Helens living in Troy, New York, done with poems and images, mixing the classical with the ordinary and delightful intelligence with irreverence.

An excerpt:

everybody died

there's nothing more to say
my hair's braided like a family
i took off, it was fun, i loved it

if you did something wrong, they punished you
one helen is enough, trust me
