View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Carolyn Kizer has compiled the 100 best poems by women, from the 15th century to the present. Although the book contains many of the obvious choices -- poems by Marianne Moore, Sylvia Plath, Emily Dickinson, and Adrienne Rich -- it is Kizer's selection of lesser-known but extraordinary poets that makes this collection stand out.
