New Book of Poems from Susana Case

Salem in Séance, Poems by Susana H. Case

Salem in Seance

In the late 1600s, in Salem, Mass., unruly young girls were diagnosed medically as victims of witchcraft. Eventually, more than 200 people were accused of practicing witchcraft. Twenty were executed—nineteen by hanging, one by crushing. Salem in Seance by Susana H. Case is a narrative exploration of these shocking events, depicting this tumultuous time with powerful detail.

Praise for Salem in Séance

“In Salem in Séance, an incendiary collection of poems about accused witches, Susana H. Case recreates a world of sickening contingencies. With style and compassion, she evokes the stories of the mostly women and girls who were victims in the Salem Witch Trials, when ‘those without powerful friends’ were sometimes sentenced to be hanged, and one was even crushed. In these radiant poems, Case reminds what happened when ‘Satan was present and active,’ when a woman was “carried like a gust great distances through the air,” and when a woman ‘signed her name in blood.’”—Margo Taft Stever

underneath my white bonnet,

of appearance, I know

begging,

curses I admit

[You make excuses for them!]

since the loss of inheritance

know the ruin upon me

makes my eyes look hollowed out …
