This summer, I’m working on a series of poems based on world mythology, most particularly the Greek, Norse, and Celtic pantheons. The research is certainly fun. I’m reading the 75th anniversary edition of Edith Hamilton’s Mythology, a book I first read as a child. Other books I’m using as inspiration are Stephen Fry’s Mythos and Carolyne Larrington’s The Norse Myths That Shape the Way We Think. So far, I have twelve poems, but I’m hoping to have 40 or 50 by summer’s end, enough for a book-length collection I plan to title Pantheon.
