Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Edited by best-selling author Marilyn Sewell, this rich and diverse anthology of more than 300 poems celebrates the sacredness of women's lives: the experiences that shape them, the relationships that sustain them, and the legacy that they build. In these poems, woman grow old, defy conventions and limits, fall in love and out again, wonder at their own bodies, and sing of the earth and sky. They pray, give birth, and make sense of suffering. As Sewell explains, "Those who write these verses do so out of exquisite courage...... They show us how to live."

Book News Annotation:

A collection of some 300 poems by well-known and new contemporary women poets, celebrating the ways women claim their inner spirit through relationships, thoughts, and actions. Contributors include Margaret Atwood, Rita Dove, Louise Erdrich, Tess Gallagher, Nikki Giovanni, Joy Harjo, and Maxine Hong Kingston. Organized in thematic sections such as identity, the body, simple blessings, mothering, work, and faith. For students and general readers.

Synopsis:

Today we need prophetic voices to remind us that we cannot separate our needs from those of our neighbors. Accordingly, this luminous collection of poems celebrating the sacredness of women's lives adopts human relationships as its central theme. Here are some 300 poems, some by famous poets, others appearing here for the first time, about lovemaking as a mutual experience, about the realities of parenting, about the necessity of friendship, about the process of helping another through her final days, about making sense of life
