She’s done it again!

14 Apr

Marilyn Singer wowed us in 2010 when she published Mirror Mirror her first book of reverso poems, that can be read forwards and backwards. That book and her follow-up Follow Follow,  retold fairy tales.

Her newest book, Echo Echo,  takes on Greek Mythology.


Publisher’s Summary: What happens when you hold up a mirror to poems about Greek myths? You get a brand-new perspective on the classics! And that is just what happens in Echo Echo, the newest collection of reverso poems from Marilyn Singer. Read one way, each poem tells the story of a familiar myth; but when read in reverse, the poems reveal a new point of view! Readers will delight in uncovering the dual points of view in well-known legends, including the stories of Pandora’s box, King Midas and his golden touch, Perseus and Medusa, Pygmalion, Icarus and Daedalus, Demeter and Persephone, and Echo and Narcissus.
