From Library Journal:

In this expansive anthology, Peircy places well-known women poets Rich, Kumin, Clampitt, and Lorde alongside lesser-known voices that insist on being heard. She defines the feminism in these poems as resting on an awareness of being part of the whole, "which is holy." The poets track many themes and longings, and as they cope simply by naming their experiences, give us the shape of an era. Here, woman competes with the world for her own time and voice, as in Kathleen Spivack's "This square/is made up of/ moments of past happiness/ duplicated/ throughout the entire quilt" or the courageous Meridel LeSueur's "I am luminous with age/ In my lap I hold the valley,/ I see on the horizon what has been taken."
