Books of Poetry by Frances Donovan

Debut Full-Length:

Arboretum in a Jar (Lily Poetry Review Books, 2023)

“…weaves lyric poetry with memoir, dramatic personae with careful self-reflection, all in complex meditation on trauma, sexual awakening, recovery, and femininity.  Rapunzel, Snow White, and princesses in many guises are alive in these poems, not as fairy tale characters, but as versions of the speaker’s fragmented self…” – Kevin Prufer
