Description

Aphrodite Made Me Do It is a feminist poetry collection about love, loss, insecurity, pain, and empowerment. Here is also rage and sorrow; at the limitations and restrictions of a woman’s given role and taken rights; at the expectations heaped upon the female form and spirit; of the false representations used to define womanhood and thus control it.

I think maybe I lack the background knowledge of the scenarios which were at the times of classical poets or I also lack the classical vocab too.The long-awaited second instalment in Samantha Shannon's Sunday Times and New York Times-bestselling series Tunuva Melim is a sister of the Priory. It gave me the chills, it made me cry and it gave me so many emotions that not many poem books were able to give me. Mateer simultaneously speaks to us about love and loss and the empowerment that can come from them, while channeling the goddess and retelling her story as a form of dedication and reclamation—not only for the goddess, but for those of us who never quite fit the mold they want to shove us into, the one they say is meant for us. I felt like this book saw me on an oceanic-deep level and spoke to some of the rawest parts of me, while encouraging me to reconnect with myself and the warrior within.

There was something so unique about this collection and I love that the author included her illustrations and art work. Trista Mateer is the award-winning and bestselling author of multiple poetry collections, including the feminist greek mythology retelling, Aphrodite Made Me Do It.In response to these representations, the poet presents the reader with a powerful goddess, who knows her own mind and who is very angry. I loved the illustrations and pictures included in this book which I really think helped to highlight the lovely prose. Aphrodite Made Me Do It is a collection of prose-poetry, framed as a conversation between the author and Aphrodite, goddess of love, sex and beauty.
