Format: Paperback
I did not choose to buy this book, it's one of my set texts on a course for my degree. However, having said that, I have enjoyed the poetry much more than I thought I would.
The anthology includes poetry by women most of us would of heard of (Carol Ann Duffy, being one). But it also includes poetry by women you may not have heard of. Two poets whose work I particularly like are Julie O'Callaghan and Medbh McGuckian. All of the usual themes are included; love, death, marriage, loss etc. However, some poets have dealt with these themes in new and interesting ways; for example, "Not My Best Side" by U. A. Fanthorpe is a poem which includes the voice of a princess, a dragon and the heroic knight.
What I like about this anthology is that it has made me more interested in women's poetry. It is a good introduction to the poets included and their work. I will definitely keep this volume once I have completed my degree. For lovers of poetry, I think it is a must.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
To open this book is something like walking into a room in your home which you avoid & also hold dear.With the sensibility of these women writers, perhaps now you're ready to make it your bedroom; sleeping with the monster and the beauty.In Linda France's gathering of poets from Britain and Ireland she offers all of us, no matter the gender, many companions, many opportunities for exploring the darkness and the light we are. Only by acknowledging & being with what we ignore (if not repress)& only by allowing ourselves to also dance & giggle, will we ultimately return to the wisdom and compassion that's always waiting. The sensibilities of these women can help in our journey. (BTW: While I found myself sitting alongside one wishing she'd keep talking, next I'd be with one I wish would get off at the next stop. When she didn't, I left. (I've gone back to the don't-much-like ones, especially certain poems, & found reason to stay.) Whether you like what you hear/feel or not, these are honest and vital voices.
