Atalanta

An Anatomy

Buy Now:

By redistributing the myth of Atalanta across time and space, and adapting it to the story of her own experiences growing up in a series of rural settings, Christine Hume investigates the porous space between fantasy and memory. Atalanta: An Anatomy is a cracked meditation on girlhood itself as a precarious object of male violence. As it leaks questions about the fugitive and the feral, the neglected and the hunted, it telegraphically indexes wildness in the human imagination.
