MEDIA REVIEWS

'This book offers a set of ingenious readings of an unusual grouping of women poets, most of whom have been insufficiently studied and are now set in juxtaposition with each other in highly productive and illuminating ways. Comparison of Hejinian and Scalapino along the axis of public/private and spatiality/personhood, which underlies debates about citizenship is a juxtaposition that has an opportunity to become a foundational reading in secondary literature on women language poets. The careful readings of Spahr and Jarnot were quite moving and insightful. A strong and welcome contribution to the field.' - Maria Damon, University of Minnesota
