Abstract

In Tulpamancy Groom explores themes of gender, girlhood, and the grotesque in a collection of poems that confront our stereotypical assumptions about what it means to be feminine. Lyrical and disturbing, the poems in Tulpamancy use language in a highly associative manner to dismantle our preconceived notions about women, the muse, and the relationship between the two.
