Good Woman

By: Lucille Clifton

$18.50


"Lucille Clifton is one of the four or five most authentic and profound living American poets. Her ear is fine-tuned to the subtle relationship of verbal music to image and metaphor; and her imagination avails itself of that osmosis by which the mythic is realized in the quotidian, the humble and everyday is illuminated by the spiritual."--Denise Levertov

Appetite: Food as Metaphor -- An Anthology of Women Poets

By: Jeanne Foster, Phylis Stowell

$16.00


In poems from as varied women poets such as Jane Kenyon, Lucille Clifton, Anne Sexton, and Sylvia Plath, food emerges as a reoccurring and central metaphor in the way women live, in the pulse of the everyday, and as a vehicle for the exotic. From coffee to caviar, from potatoes to dandelions--even in hunger and anorexia--the metaphors of food have worked like yeast in the imagination of these poets.
