Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With poems in English by over one hundred female poets — American, English, Scottish, Canadian, South African, Indian, Irish, and Australian — this is an extraordinary collection that pays homage to four centuries of women's desires, friendships, and expressions of love. The collection is testimony to the rich tradition of female verse and the timelessness of love and creativity.

Review:

"Poets from the last 400 years contribute to this rich anthology of women's love poetry, which includes works from Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Emily Dickinson, Audre Lorde and Adrienne Rich. This collection, revealing secrets, longings and startling friendships, is an eloquent tribute to love shared by women." Chicago Tribune

Review:

"Dazzling in its range and scope, Poems Between Women places in sharp focus the matrix of women's lives, socially and emotionally, over four centuries... Outstanding." San Francisco Examiner-Chronicle
