Poems from the Women's Movement

From the Library of America catalog:

“The Women’s Movement of the 1960s, 70s and 80s generated an extraordinary outpouring of poetry that captured an age of expectancy, of ecstatic possibility, of defiant purpose, and of exuberant exploration. In gathering the best of this poetry, Honor Moore has performed an act of recovery that shows the remarkable range in both form and subject matter of that era’s poetry, including work by Adrienne Rich, Audre Lorde, Muriel Rukeyser, Judy Grahn, and many others.”
