dc.description.abstractBeastgirl is a collection of poems that respond to the necessity of myths. Sectioned into two parts, part I aims to examine how colonialism and patriarchy collide and intersect. From bio-myths to better known myths about Columbus and the Caribbean, the speaker elevates the folkloric, the domestic, and the island imaginary as imperative pieces of understanding the self. In part II, the speaker maps herself onto a transnational experience and aims to transport the reader to the grit and grime of urban living. The public nature of those city poems are paired alongside intimate poems depicting the speaker's brother suffering from schizophrenia.en_US
