Bonnie K. Lyons, Ph.D.

In Other Words

"Bonnie Lyons' first full-length collection of poetry pulses with “the terrible questions” that plague the often unnamed, unvoiced women of the Bible. From the searing rage of Tamar to the patient insight of Rizpah, from Jezebel's ferocious warning to Jael's painful revelation, these forceful revisionary versions of Biblical episodes offer us a series of dramatic monologues that build, fortissimo, to a resounding chorus."
