About this title


From the cover: "This is a rich and exciting collection of contemporary women's poetry for the 1980s. Selected and introduced by Marge Piercy, and celebrating the diverse racial, ethnic and cultural experiences of poets from all over the United States, in includes such well known names as Meridel Le Sueur, Audre Lorde and Adrienne Rich as wel as rising new poets like Joy Harjo, Celia Gilbert and Sharon Olds. Bringing together brand new poems and some of her own favorites, Marge Piercy shows that women are writing powerful, witty and moving poetry." Poems by over 60 poets with notes on each. 280 pages

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."
