 With The Highwayman's Wife, Lynnell Edwards' fierce and brazen poems breathe new life into well-known myths and tales, giving a new, bold voice to characters such as Medusa and Helen of Troy. Equal parts graceful and audacious, Edwards' poems capture her genuine love of language while maintaining a charming style all their own.
