An Open Letter to Ophelia (Paperback)
Wicked stepsisters. Beautiful princesses. Heroic warriors. Everyone grows up on fairy tales and mythology populated by these characters, but what perspectives are omitted as these stories pass from generation to generation? An Open Letter to Ophelia gives voiceless women of ancient myth and medieval lore a chance to speak.
Poet Lulu Rasor asks what these witches, queens, saints, and monsters would say if given the chance, and how they would fit in the modern world. In prayer, sleepover confession, and love letters, this collection begins to imagine new sides to familiar and ancient tales.
About the Author
A graduate of Yarmouth High School in Yarmouth, Maine, and student at Oberlin College, Lulu Rasor has been a lover of all things mythology since she can remember. When she’s not reading ancient epics to retell in her poetry, she likes to geek out over fantasy books, ice skate, and over-analyze action movies with help from her twin sister.
