Wander through the nameless city full of rebellion, desire, and ferocity. Jessica Halsey’s Lupercalia guides readers through the ruins of stories as they smash against reality.
The city is born, slippery and feral, and then it grows, collects and rejects a multitude of denizens that break and reshape the boundaries of mythology.
These speculative and fantastical poems represent the search for identity and purpose in a world that challenges the endurance of the human spirit. From the fall of Icarus to the loneliness of abandon, these poems represent how every mythological hero and trial are reflections of our daily lives.
This collection is a revised and updated Second Edition of Jessica Halsey’s two previously self-published poetry collections, Graveyard and Twisted Myths.
