The Desperate Measure of Undoing explores the feminine through mythology’s influence on the contemporary world. This collection of poems examines how the stories and truths of ancient women resonate today, and how the human condition, as a whole, is rooted in a timelessness beyond the confines of any era.
“The Desperate Measure of Undoing by Jessica Fischoff is like a lucid dream. Her images are precise, yet innovative, and yield feelings of both devastation and hope. Fischoff reminds us that sin is a wild thing, as is the journey she’ll take you on in this book. It’s a fresh and vulnerable first collection of poems. Read it! You won’t regret it. ” – Dawn Lundy Martin
