Beate Sigriddaughter has dedicated this collection of poetry to Xanthippe, the "not exactly beloved" wife of the revered philosopher Socrates. Xanthippe's name was used for a long time as a synonym for "shrew." Sigriddaughter says that, having lived "for many years among wise and also unwise men, I want to honor her memory, together with the memory of all women, sung or unsung, who have bravely made and continue to make their way through this complicated existence of questionable attitudes with grace and rage and sadness and joy.
