The heathens is a collection of poems that explores womanhood from an eccentric narrative that has remained untold. It celebrates love, rage, and coming of age in a fiercely feminist retelling of stories to which we have all been privy. Inspired by women in mythology and the author’s own life, each poem tells a new tale of hope, despair, and resilience. To quote from the book, each poem is characterized by “an unapologetic fervour often mistaken as apathy by man.”
Note from the author
The heathens is an intensive labor of love, and I can only hope that I have been able to pay my homage to womanhood in all its flawed beauty. It is a love letter to every woman who has inspired, loved, and helped me grow into the person I am today. I hope you feel my poems are worth a read and consider delving into a world of emotions that came from a very vulnerable stage in my life.
