Detailed Description

From the first poem in Michaela Coplen’s pamphlet, ‘the mind begins this
squeaking’ — an urgent impulse that never stops. Finishing School charts a
young woman’s growth through an abecedarian form, each poem a letter of
the alphabet that marks a different stage of learning. Encountering ‘lessons’
ranging from childhood dress-up games, to instances of intimacy, academic
interviews, and funeral planning, the subject navigates an education in
womanhood and power — developing her own understandings of
vulnerability, ambition, escape.
