All Day I Dream About Sirens

A poetry collection by Domenica Martinello.

Domenica Martinello

From Homer to Starbucks, a look at sirens and mermaids and feminism and consumerism. What started as a small sequence of poems about the Starbucks logo grew to monstrous proportions after the poet fell under a siren spell herself. All Day I Dream About Sirens is both an ancient reverie and a screen-induced stupor as these poems reckon with the enduring cultural fascination with siren and mermaid narratives as they span geographies, economies and generations, chronicling and reconfiguring the male-centered epic and women's bodies and subjectivities.
