The Other Crown

· Emmanuella Hristova

About this ebook

The Other Crown is a collection of poems that asks the question: how much power do women have to give up in order to fall in love? Hristova's second poetry book explores themes of love, romance and sexuality as they are intertwined with the patriarchy. Questioning how she gains her power as a woman, Hristova attempts to unwind the complicated nature of relationships, societal expectations, and the imbalance of power between the sexes. The Other Crown is a love letter to women: their love lives, their heartbreaks, and their friendships with one another.
