Songs for Ophelia
Theodora Goss (Author)
DescriptionTheodora Goss has been a finalist for the Nebula, Crawford, Locus, Seiun, and Mythopoeic Awards, and on the Tiptree Award Honor List. Her prose-poem "Octavia is Lost in the Hall of Masks" (2003) won the Rhysling Award and her short story "Singing of Mount Abora" (2007) won the World Fantasy Award. SONGS FOR OPHELIA gathers together eighty of Theodora's otherworldly poems which lead the reader, as though under a spell, through the unfolding of the seasons and into the realm of pure magic. Delia Sherman, author of THE FREEDOM MAZE and CHANGELING, says about SONGS FOR OPHELIA, "Willows, dancing maidens, gypsies, mothers, lovers, daughters, magic animals, living waters, and transformations of all kinds abound in these gorgeous poems. With her formal prosody, her fairytale subjects, and her insights on love and loss and longing, Goss manages, Janus-like, to look back to the Victorians and inward at the heart of a modern woman with intelligence and grace."
