Consorting With Angels: Essays on Modern Women Poets

by Deryn Rees-Jones - £10.95  Bloodaxe (2005)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781852243920 | ISBN 10: 1852243929

Until recently, women’s poetry has been at best sidelined and at worst forgotten. In this pioneering study, Deryn Rees-Jones argues that the poetic traditions of the past hundred years must be radically rethought in the light of the formal and thematic experimentation of three generations of women poets.
Establishing a lineage of women poets, from the more well-known work of Edith Sitwell, Stevie Smith, Elizabeth Jennings, Elizabeth Bishop, Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton, to the equally exciting work of Sheila Wingfield, and contemporary poets such as Jo Shapcott, Gwyneth Lewis, Grace Nichols, Carol Ann Duffy, Selima Hill and Medbh McGuckian, Rees-Jones sets out to show the vitality and ingenuity of women’s poetry in Britain and America over the past hundred years.
