Women's Poetry Anthologies

I'm off to London shortly for tonight's event at The Poetry Library, "What Every Woman Would Carry: Women's Poetry Anthologies," moderated by Dr Jane Dowson, author of A Cambridge History of Twentieth-Century British Women's Poetry; my fellow panelist is Maura Dooley, editor of Making for Planet Alice: New Women's Poetry (Bloodaxe, 1997). Thoughts?


  1. Why didn't I hear of this before? I keep getting invited to poetry events where I do not know anybody and have to pay large amounts of money getting in. Yet nobody tells me about this. Maura Dooley is a fantastic poet.

  2. belatedly..THE VIRAGO BOOK OF LOVE POETRY (UK, 1990). anyone there mention it I wonder....
