Diamonds Are Wild
The Women of Trachis
Sophocles' Women of Trachis, written in the 5th century BCE, focuses on themes of love, beauty, violence, and destruction. The work examines obsession and desire, set in the context of a achingly beautiful but violent world. Translated by Viveca Smith.

By Jan Seabaugh
Many of us have elderly parents or parents who have passed away after long illnesses or infirmities. But who were they for most of their lives? How would they like for us to remember them? Jan Seabaugh's book of poetry lets us see her mother as a vital, essential human being who lived an influential life that resonates through her children. In Jan Seabaugh's mother, we see our own parents in this universal ode to those we love.
