The Woman Who Slept With Men to Take the War Out of Them,
a multi-voice book-play by Deena Metzger


Like Meridel Le Sueur, Doris Lessing and Maxine Hong Kingston, Deena Metzger's world combines the political and the personal in a stunning mythopoetic unity, and asks-in Metzger's words-"How can we go to the general without using the weapons of the general?" In her novel (written in play form) The Woman Who Slept With Men To Take The War Out Of Them we discover how we respond to the duress, pain, conflict of our troubled century. The play is directed by Nick Karavatos and performed by students in the NCOC Poetics Program.
