Overview

So here you go, seventy-six women poets who've all read at the Bowery Poetry Club in New York City. One poet, one poem, one photo, that's the recipe for this book. Poets were asked to send their Greatest Hit. (One poet wrote a wonderful Letter of Opposition about how you cannot reduce an oeuvre to a unit: I wish we had room to print it!) We look on this book as an introduction--a go-to starting point for the women who helped open the gates to the Academy of the Future of 21st Century Poetry.

This is book so revolutionary and patterned by today's time, the editors decided to alphabetize the poets by first names because computers do it that way and who says that patronyms win all the time anyway? So who's your fave? Just remember to look for her by first name--

    great collection of a diverse range of voices

    this poetry is alive and beating...the book sings like a mix tape of favorite voices and new ones you can't believe you've only just discovered.
