Summary
  • "In these essays a leading feminist critic and authority on women's poetry sets the terms for debate on identity, gender and tradition by exploring what it has meant to write in the twentieth century. Women's poetry is the dominant but not exclusive preoccupation of the book. The opening essays deal with women's poetry and the construction of traditions, from the pioneering 'In her own image: contemporary women poets' out of which Montefiore's Feminism and Poetry grew, to intertextual readings of women poets of World War I, of the 1930s, and of American feminists. The central section 'Writers and readings' engages closely with admired writers - Elizabeth Barrett Browning, D.J. Enright, Kipling, Adrienne Rich, Edgell Rickword, Sylvia Townsend Warner
  • In the final section, 'Culture and feminist theory' the author examines the constructions of gendered identity in a variety of contexts: poetic ambiguity, girls' school stories and psychoanalytic debates." "Written with Montefiore's customary lucidity, elegance and wit, this book is indispensable reading for anyone interested in feminist literary studies, women's poetry and the problems of modern writing."--Jacket
