In Object Lesson, Jennifer Jean explores human-trafficking, objectification, pain, and survival with compassion, respect, and as a witness to women. This powerful and stunning collection dives deep and connects through stories where what is wounded is holy, is important, is surviving. Jean finds hope in darkness in honoring the lives of women and a life led: In the language of flora—/she is Regal. Sometimes called Spear/or Welted or Blessed—. These were poems I could not turn away from; poignant and haunting, I held their truth and their strength. This is an important book , one to be read by all—these voices need to be heard and Jean’s poems need to be in the world.
