This is book number 3 in the Myth and Magick series.


Bestselling and Goodreads Choice Award-winning author Trista Mateer returns with another mythical approach to self-care in her newest poetry collection, Persephone Made Me Do It. 

Following her previous work in this series, Mateer weaves together mythology, tarot, poetry, and conversation to reveal a new side of a very old story. Alternating between the perspectives of poet and goddess, Persephone’s lore is explored, related to modern issues, and ultimately reclaimed.

“You want to talk about duality? You want to talk about love? Let us speak instead of chaos.”

In this new collection of art and feminist verse from Trista Mateer, Persephone might have flowers in her hair—but she is out for blood.

This is the third book in the Myth & Magick series, which also includes Aphrodite Made Me Do It and Artemis Made Me Do It.

Praise For…

"This book is visceral, powerful, and essential for anyone with a love of mythology and poetry. Hugely recommended. Be prepared to feel the fury and might of this lyrical masterpiece." — Nikita Gill, author of Great Goddesses

"Trista Mateer has her pen on the pulse of girlhood. In this third instalment of the Myth and Magick series Mateer dissects mothers, daughters, and the stories that shape them. I devoured this book in a day, moved by these poems which take the language of myth and spin it into a new and glorious light. Persephone dazzles under Mateer's careful eye, speaking with candor and heart to those of us that have known survival intimately.” — Caitlin Conlon, author of The Surrender Theory
