Women's Poetry Studies: A Manual

This book takes a cultural approach to twentieth-century women's poetry, reorienting the psychological bent of previous studies. Considering the work of eight American and British poets, my study places it in dialogue with original cultural contexts and contemporary forms of circulation. I also assess the ways the term "women's poetry" has shifted meanings across three decades of reviews, criticism, and anthologies. Arguing that women poets are cultural insiders, I move beyond feminist models that separate women's poetry from the mainstream, the marketplace, and the media. At the same time, I draw from feminist criticism to assess gender issues that shape women poets' participation in the public sphere.
