Lizzie Borden. For some, the name conjures an innocent young woman who bravely faced her trial with strength and fortitude. To others, she has become the icon of all things gruesome because of the bloody nature of the crimes for which she was charged. And yet others see Lizzie Borden as a woman who got away with murder.
These 50 poems trace the life of this enigmatic woman-from the 19th through the 20th century. We meet her as a young adult and watch her develop into an old woman living alone on “the Hill.”
Do Come In is a remarkable collection of poems entirely devoted to the Lizzie Borden story.
So Do Come In, and meet Lizzie Borden and other characters as diverse as Jack the Ripper, Bob and Charlie Ford, and Rachael Ray, in poems that range from humorous to horrific.
