    The Niobe Poems
    Book Description:

    Kate Daniels's central myth is that of Niobe, the mother in Greek mythology whose children were killed by the gods because of her great pride in them. She taps the lasting power of the ancient story in poems about personal loss and political insanity. Though the subjects are frequently grim, the final effect of the book is not, since Daniels's central theme is endurance, the discovery of what we need to survive.
