"[Walker’s] well-focused, clearly written essays demonstrate the conformity and the challenges to conventional expectations defining ‘women poets.’ Walker’s work makes a significant contribution to an often neglected area of American literary history." —Library Journal

"Based on close reading and explication of the texts, Walker brings fresh insights to each poet." —Choice

"... Walker has devised an original analysis that puts a new spin on the works and lives of these poets." —New Directions for Women

Concentrating on Amy Lowell, Sara Teasdale, Elinor Wylie, H.D., Edna St. Vincent Millay, and Louise Bogan, Walker analyzes the highly stylized self-images—from Lowell's androgyne to Millay's body-conscious romantic—projected by these women who attempted to renegotiate the terms upon which they could function successfully as poets.

From Library Journal:

Walker completes her examination of the literary traditions and historical experiences of American women poets begun in The Nightingale Burden: Women Poets and American Culture Before 1900 ( LJ 1/1/83). Focusing in this volume on women writing between 1910 and 1945, Walker explores the cultural traditions that influenced the lives and writings of Amy Lowell, Sara Teasdale, Elinor Wylie, H.D., Edna St. Vincent Millay, and Louise Bogan. She assumes a familiarity with the poets, their poetry, and the theories of critical analysis traditionally associated with these poets. Building upon that base, Walker examines each poet in a psychobiological, cultural, and poetic context. Her well-focused, clearly written essays demonstrate the conformity and the challenges to conventional expectations defining "women poets." Walker's work makes a significant contribution to an often neglected area of American literary history. Recommended for serious literature and women's studies collections.
