What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

'Contemporary Women's Poetry and Urban Space is a fascinating read with an excellent balance of general theoretical insight and close textual analysis of some very challenging work. Skoulding draws together disparate practices and theories to weave together a picture of innovative, gendered poetry and poetics developed by a range of international poets in response to the city. Her wide reference helps her achieve a global, though not totalizing, perspective and it is instructive and inspiring to see these poets brought together within the covers of one book.' - Harriet Tarlo, Sheffield Hallam University, UK
