curtain made from woven manuscript pages annotated with couplets from Chapman's Homer
detail from homage to chapman’s homer

Welcome!

I am a poet, essayist, novelist, and Icelandic-English translator. Browse these pages, if you like, to sample my work and learn about my career and recent news. For Icelandic, click here.

When I finish a large project, I paint and cut the manuscript pages and weave an image from them in honor of an author who has inspired me.

How do you weave web pages? What would gleaming-eyed Athena, goddess of craft, do with a website? Would she let us see her? In what sense could we see her?

With thanks for your interest,

Sarah M. Brownsberger
