Hagar raises her son across an unwelcoming border. Bathsheba tries to erase her trauma. Another breakup haunts the woman at the well. The poems in Birthmarks contemporize women of the Old and New Testaments and consider who they might be today. Drawing on history, subtext, and common female experiences, they reimagine these characters and their narratives, daring readers to meet the women of the Bible anew.
