Floodgate Poetry Series Vol. 4, selected and edited by Andrew McFadyen-Ketchum, collects three chapbooks in a single volume: Regina DiPerna's A Map
of Veins, Ryan Teitman's Jesuits, and Paisley Rekdal's Philomela. Philomela parallels the myth of Philomela with Rekdal's own experience with sexual
assault in a series of poems combining verse and lyric essay. In these brace, experimental poems, Rekdal investigates Western cultural definitions of sexual harassment, sexual assault and rape.
