Linguistically innovative poetry by women in North America & the UK

Edited and with an introduction by Maggie O’Sullivan
Afterword by Wendy Mulford

Linguistically innovative poetry, language-centred poetry, call it what you will, is often thought of as a male preserve. This anthology, first published in 1996, paints a very different picture. It demonstrates that some of the most challenging and exciting new work over recent years is being made by women.

The 30 poets included in this anthology are: Rae Armantrout, Caroline Bergvall, Nicole Brossard, Paula Claire, Tina Darragh, Deanna Ferguson, Kathleen Fraser, Barbara Guest, Carla Harryman, Lyn Hejinian, Fanny Howe, Susan Howe, Grace Lake, Karen MacCormack, Bernadette Mayer, Geraldine Monk, Wendy Mulford, Melanie Neilson, Maggie O’Sullivan, Carlyle Reedy, Joan Retallack, Denise Riley, Lisa Robertson, Leslie Scalapino, Catriona Strang, Fiona Templeton, Rosmarie Waldrop, Diane Ward, Hannah Weiner, Marjorie Welish.
