The Woman's Part (Paperback)
Using a combination of original prose and erasure poetry, The Woman's Part reimagines the lives and desires of Shakespeare's women - their unspoken opinions, perspectives, and unwritten endings. Each piece is accompanied by an erasure poem made from one of the character's speeches. Gatford says of her chapbook, "My aim with this collection was not necessarily to make a grand statement, but to explore the thoughts and experiences of women who were never given the stage time to say what they really thought, or the ending they deserved. Which is probably all any of us really want."
