Named for the mismatched shoes of the goddess who danced the world into being—the woman who created the world, Eurynome's Sandals presents poems of different genres and lengths, perhaps of different planets. Alice Notley has been called "one of America's greatest living poets," though she lives in France and maintains an international presence. These are poems of Right Now, with themes of immigration, apocalypse, and the Film/Poetry bifurcation of our nightmare metaphysics. But these are beautiful poems!
