Julie Fay believes, as she writes in one of her poems, that "we are nothing but what we imagine / ourselves to be." In these pages, she has imagined personalities from many parts of the world and the mind. They include characters from Greek and Native American myth as well as from history - Andromeda and Cassiopeia, Georgia O'Keefe and a Hungarian countess, the poet's own mother and sisters - in settings that range from the Grand Canyon to the Grand Canal. Fay examines the lives of women at various stages of life - as daughter, sister, lover, mother - while she journeys into both the self and into history.
