Feminine Testament


From The Sex Allegory, Louisa Lum continues the feminist debate in Feminine Testament – a ‘provocative’ collection which explores taboo subjects such as sex and sexual displeasure, prostitution, infidelity, and social stigmatization in direct, but fragmentary verse. Lum’s poetry is a poetic counter discourse to a social system that defames unmarried females and valorises marriage even in the case where it is failing. The poems challenge stereotypes of female volatility, Jezebel-like lasciviousness and hypersexual lusting and put the male folk on a barrage for sexual dissatisfaction.
