“Our hearts split in two and kept beating.”

Betrayal, abduction, reconciliation. Among the stories of Rome’s founding is the tale of the women from the beautiful region of Sabina—stolen, forced to marry the Roman men, and ultimately brokering peace between two nations to become matriarchs of the Roman Empire. The poems of The Sabine Women explore this complicated story through the imagined voices of the women, and through examining the works that artists, inspired by this story, have made through the ages.
