0 Reviews
Women's poetry has too often been undervalued, misread, or simply ignored; but in this updated edition, Montefiore convincingly reappraises the range, scope, and variety of women s poetry, past and present. With a readable and lucid explanation and application of current critical theory, this book helps readers to appreciate writers ranging from Christina Rossetti, Eavan Boland, and Grace Nichols to Adrienne Rich, Irena Klepfisz, and Liz Lochhead.
