Books Description :
Review '[An] outstanding collection . . . These poems are a tribute to the women we've loved and the women we've lost.'--Lesbian News'A collection that celebrates the varieties of the lesbian experience in language that demands to be savored, to be read aloud. . . . Newman's eye for quality is exquisite; her selections delight the heart, the mind, the very soul.'--Bay Area Reporter Read more From the Inside Flap Editor Leslea Newman has collected the work of both well-known and emerging poets to create an anthology of some of the finest writers of any gender or sexual orientation writing poetry today. The probing fierceness of Adrienne Rich's 'Love Poem,' the stirring sensual incantation of Ellen Bass's 'Praise,' the intensely felt tenderness of Dorothy Allison's 'Reason Enough to Love You,' are just a few examples of the rich talent displayed in this volume. These poets have written daring confessions of love, sorrow, anger, and joy. Each poem is an elaborate confirmation of the resilience of the human spirit, and the ability to transform experience--including the struggle against the societal taboo of same-sex love--into brilliant poetry.
