"This anthology gathers together more than eighty contemporary lesbian poets - women, both young and old, of African, Asian, European, Latina, Native, and South Seas heritage. Well-known poets such as Gloria Anzaldua, Chrystos, Judy Grahn, Marilyn Hacker, Audre Lorde, Pat Parker, Adrienne Rich, and Muriel Rukeyser, and a new generation of poets such as Mi Ok Song Bruining, Ana Bantigue Fajardo, Melinda Goodman, and Melanie Hope, are featured in this energizing gift of imagination and heart, vision and community. Coss, a writer, activist, and psychotherapist with twenty years' experience working with individuals and couples, has selected poems that tell the story of love with eloquence, humor, grace, and passion." "The poetry collected here is a generous sustaining resource for understanding attractions, loneliness, lust, hate, sexual play, power games, monogamy, fantasy, commitment, the search for meaning and direction in our daily lives."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
