Myth America is a tour de force. Four nationally acclaimed and emerging poets from diverse backgrounds and generations merge to create a remarkable collaboration. Maureen Seaton, Holly Iglesias, Carolina Hospital and Nicole-Hospital Medina call themselves "Tres abuelas y una mama." For two years these poets meet once a week to tackle old and new ways of poetic experimentation. Through shared lines or shared themes, sonnets, pantoums, triptychs, and haibuns, this compilation takes on historic, domestic and civic violence, mental health, and feminism. These masterful poems are political and existential, as well as intimate and spiritual. In an age of growing discord, this book’s transcendental force lies in its banded energy.
