Summary
  • Dwelling in Possibility cuts across conventional boundaries between critical and creative writing by featuring the work of both women poets and feminist critics as they explore and exemplify the relationship between gender and poetic genres. The contributors suggest new ways of thinking and writing about poetry in light of contemporary question about history and identity. Most of the contributions are published here for the first time
  • This imaginatively conceived book covers a range in terms of time, geography, and genre, considering poets from antiquity to the present and drawing on a variety of critical approaches. Of particular note are essays on the transformation of classical lyric through the figure of Sappho, and on the transformative use of biblical material in women's verse
