Loved this book so much I wound up buying 4 or so copies.

So far, I've gotten through chapter 1. I've read sections of the chapter more than once because I wanted to make sure I wasn't getting the wrong impression. The thing that stands out most (to me) from chapter one is the statement that some of the more extreme seclusion rites of menstruation were probably in large part created by women. I've got no problem with this premise at all. What I have a problem with is the fact that is presented as a GOOD thing. Making a woman lie in one spot for days on end or go without sleep or stay in forced isolation that in some cultures lasted months should not be any less disturbing just because women might have thought it up.

An honest effort will be made on my part to read the rest of the book. My main reservation is that the book will be in large part a justification of the shame and self-loathing many mothers have passed on to their daughters.

I gave up on reading the rest. It just does not hold my interest at this time.

This is a poetic retelling of "The Descent of Inanna" set in a dyke bar (Grahn's term). Inanna is a rich, priveleged, restless wife who goes out to seek something unnamed, who ends up on an underworld journey that transforms her. Ereshkigal is the bar's owner and tender, and the bar's patrons play a variety of supporting roles.

I feel like this retelling of Inanna's descent set in a lesbian bar was made for me. After writing and editing Tarot poetry for over two years, I still love the genre, and especially the Tarot reader in this text, Nin (Ninshubur). The theatrical elements of Queen of Swords remind me of acting in--and contributing a response poem to--a play written in verse by my Antioch College friend Angela. Long before I attended Antioch, I began researching Goddesses, including Inanna and Her other incarnations that are mentioned in Queen of Swords. And I have made several important decisions--like attending grad school at Mills College--in lesbian bars.… (mere)
