In poems from as varied women poets as Jane Kenyon, Lucille Clifton, and Anne Sexton, food emerges as a re-occurring 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.Preface by Chef Charlotte Turgeon.Phyllis Stowell initiated the Saint Mary's College of California MFA program.

'A Cast of Coins' derives from contemplation of the language and images encountered in the 'I CHING, ' an ancient Chinese text used for divination. Those who are unfamiliar with the 'I CHING (or Yi Jing) The Book of Changes, ' will be able to read the poems as poems without referring to it. However, some knowledge of this text would add a dimension to the reader's experience. At the core lies an interchange between concept and image taken from nature as well as cultural, social and religious life. 'A Cast of Coins' is a book about messages.
