    One thought on “Aphrodite’s Daughter

    1. Kendall on said:

      Becky Gould Gibson examines mother/daughter and husband/wife relationships in the context of fertility myths, painting (the male artist's relationship to the female model/mistress), love, life, and naturally, death. Her care with language and her vibrant imagery make these poems come alive on the page. This is a well-wrought volume of poems that speaks to the contemporary world even as it communicates with our past.
