Archive of the Undressed
PoemsBook - 2012
Independent Publishing Group
From twirling tassels to dead playmates Archive of the Undressed is a sharp, darkly comic look at the image of women in a society between changing sexual mores. Jeanette Lynes brings her iconic style to these poems, fearlessly critiquing attitudes towards women, poking at Canadian identity and finding something sexy in the settlement of "The Queen's Bush," Northern Ontario. A wickedly pointed and funny collection, Archive of the Undressed will overturn any reader's belief that poetry is boring.
