With Paper for Feet  is themed and narrative, drawing together Jennifer A. McGowan’s poetry of myth and folktale, and the frailties – human and otherwise – behind them. With Paper for feet explores, mostly from a female perspective, the guts it takes to live or – often – die, un-heroically. her characters laugh, argue, complain, suffer, curse,

…Gold is heavy,

and it chafes…

aware that more is expected of them, but unwilling to play up.

Jennifer explores many voices including the women of Troy & many of Shakespeare’s characters, as well as poems based in other cultures including France, Africa & China.
