Poetry. Women's Studies. In PINK MUSEUM—the not-so-imaginary space where girls are permitted to talk—Caroline Crew grapples with claiming a voice and claiming literary mothers. Influenced by the sonnets of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, PINK MUSEUM transforms Victorian meter into a jagged contemporary howling. Crew pushes the lyric until it cracks, asking who gets to address to who, and what it means to be a woman poet speaking.
