ANCIENT VOICES

"Kate Hovey's verse is an excellent storytelling medium--clear, pictorial, full of action... the poems use a great variety of perspectives and (with good classical precedent) let us in on the very human feelings of the immortals."

Richard Wilbur, Pulitzer Prize winner and
former poet laureate of the United States.

"With settings from Mount Olympus to the underworld, these lyrical poems and dramatic picture-book-size illustrations humanize the Greek myths with flashes of contemporary realism...the poetry here is both intense and accessible, with unobtrusive rhyme that adds to the music of the lines."
