Six Women Poets offers a selection of contemporary women's poetry from Gillian Clarke, Grace Nichols, Fleur Adcock, Carole Rumens, Selima Hill and Liz Lochhead. This edition, for students studying English Literature at Advanced Level or as part of a college course, contains over 80 poems. Each poet has written an introduction to her poetry, giving insights into the way she writes and reflecting on the cultural influences in her work. In keeping with other Oxford Student Texts, this edition has a Notes section following on from the poems which gives support on individual poems, with glossaries and explanations of words and phrases and comments designed to encourage the student's own response. The Reviews section provides a collection of recent critical material on each poet as a starting point for discussion and written work. The Tasks and a Further Reading list at the end of the text offer opportunities for coursework and wider reading. This volume is the most contemporary in the Oxford Student Texts series, and should attract a lot of extra interest.
