This reprint of a White Pine Press classic brings together an
astonishing range of work from the turn of the century to the
present. Despite cultural maxims encouraging them to be silent,
women continue to speak, often through the language of poetry,
where there is an abundance of intuition and the possibility of
reclaiming power through language. In the work included here, we
see how the common threads of courage and inventiveness can be
woven into a bright tapestry of women's voices that presents a true
picture of a culture that must create its own history. Over fifty
poets, including those well-known, such as Gabriela Mistral,
Alfonsina Storni, and Cristina Peri Rossi, and those just emerging
are included. Marjorie Agosin, editor of the Secret Weavers series,
is well-known as a poet, writer, and human rights activist. She is
a professor at Wellesley College in Massachusetts.
