Burning of the Three Fires shows Jeanne Marie Beaumont using her characteristic variety of techniques: dramatic monologues, lists, prose poems, object poems, and ekphrasis, to which she adds biography, elegy, and rites. This book takes a multifaceted look at womanhood: there are dolls, historic and modern girlhoods, mythic retellings of characters from Goldilocks to the Bride of Frankenstein, emotionally charged domestic trinkets, and even a conversation with Sylvia Plath conducted via a Magic 8- Ball.

Jeanne Marie Beaumont is the author of Curious Conduct (BOA Editions, Ltd., 2004) and the National Poetry Series-winning book Placebo Effects . She lives in New York City.
