Abstract: In the Clothes of Others is a collection of poems that begins with a nontraditional evocation of the muses and is followed by three different sections of poems. The thirteen poems in first section deal with how we use narratives to understand our daily lives and how those narratives often fail. The nine poems in the second section explore unstated implications of fairy tales often from the point of view of characters within the story. The nine poems in the third section focus on myths from the Judeo-Christian, Greek and Norse traditions. These poems explore how the myths affect our view of the world and like the second section focus on the unstated implication of these stories often from the character's point of view.
