Persephone looks out the window from her dark room

Alana Corwin’s (’20) ‘Persephone’

In the early years of the 20th century, in a house that was once grand. Persephone returns to her childhood home after her mother’s funeral. As Demeter’s only heir, Persephone must now attend to both her mother’s estate and her ashes which she carefully carries in a golden urn. While inside this old, decaying house, Persephone is caught in a kind of limbo, of carrying out her mother’s wishes and the weight of accepting her mother’s death. As Persephone struggles through this grief, nature and the forest surrounding this old house will find a way to join Persephone and guide her towards redefining herself.
