Echo & Echo


Echo & Echo by Marilyn Singer is an interesting take on mythology and poetry, two things I typically don’t like or enjoy. The way that these poems are written is interesting and has you intrigued by reading two perspectives of the same tale. I enjoyed this by seeing how the author used the same words to create two different points of view of the same myth. I also have her book Mirror, Mirror. This is a great book for all people who are reluctant to poetry or mythology.

I would use this in class to talk about allusions, such as the golden tough, Pandora’s box, and the different sayings that allude to the stories because these are simple representations that get the allusion across more simply. I would also put it in my poetry unit as well as mythology and even perspective unit.
