Editorial Reviews

Choice
"McGuckian deserves a larger audience among those interested in women's studies. These 11 appreciative analyses, though meant for readers who have followed McGuckian's poetry closely, should encourage wide readership... Those new to McGuckian may find the editors' interview with McGuckian a better beginning thatn the introduction. Summing up: Recommended."
