Elsa Is Involved in a Clandestine Love Affair

Angela Veronica Wong

About This Poem


"'Elsa Is Involved in a Clandestine Love Affair' is from a series of sonnets about a fictional mistress of Louis XV. The series explores persona and character, gendered emotional saturation, and legacies of colonialism by juxtaposing 18th-century language and historical detail with modern phrases and contemporary culture."
—Angela Veronica Wong
