After being killed there by her sister, Inanna is reborn to return transformed, with her adornments no longer external but “formed by the scars of her healed wounds” (Shantz), a new Inanna who is also “a new physics” (Lilburn). By dramatizing the myth of the female dying-and-rising divinity in Lilburn’s poetic sequence and a series of colour photographs of Shantz’s room-sized constructions, the book offers us all access to the roots of feminine power in our lives.
