Reviews for Persephone

"That smile

Like the first colour of saffron dawn,

Like the touch of a river to bare ankles,

Like a knife through the heart."

Love that verse. Whole poem is goregous too.

Good piece. I like the tone - she is carefree and slightly rebellious and he is lusting, but remorseful. I've always liked this story. And I like the way you've portrayed it. Well-written.

Very pretty!

Vibrant imagery - I loved the pictures you created in that final stanza. I have my own Persephone story, but your take on her seems entirely differently from mine. The lines 'Her mother will be furious,/She says with a smile' exhibit mischief, which I found really interesting!

I like this 'new' take on the myth, though! Nicely expressed.
