Juliet as Herself
2004, 32 pages; Series Editors: Margo Taft Stever, Stephanie Strickland. By Nancy Taylor Everett, winner of the 2004 Slapering Hol Press Chapbook Competition.
“Juliet As Herself is a collection of smart yet tender poems. Here the Juliet of Shakespeare shadows the life of a curious, buoyant, modern young woman as she considers many topics including cartography, art, trees, hair, dirt, envy, and, of course, love. Nancy Taylor Everett has a flair for fresh language and a fine ear for the music of words. Everett’s Juliet is a person we want to know better, someone whose life we’d like to follow. This is a wonderful book.” —Susan Terris
