In 1817, a young woman wrote a horror novel that would become known throughout the world. In 2020, a not-so-young woman finally got around to reading that novel. This collection is a meditation on the concepts explored by Mary Shelley in Frankenstein: The Modern Prometheus. It utilizes aspects of the fool’s journey from tarot to help bring these concepts further under the poetic microscope.
