This Companion provides new ways of reading a wide range of influential women's poetry. Leading international scholars offer insights on a century of writers, drawing out the special function of poetry and the poets' use of language, whether it is concerned with the relationship between verbal and visual art, experimental poetics, war, landscape, history, cultural identity or 'confessional' lyrics. Collectively, the chapters cover well established and less familiar poets, from Edith Sitwell and Mina Loy, through Stevie Smith, Sylvia Plath and Elizabeth Jennings to Anne Stevenson, Eavan Boland and Jo Shapcott. They also include poets at the forefront of poetry trends, such as Liz Lochhead, Jackie Kay, Patience Agbabi, Caroline Bergvall, Medbh McGuckian and Carol Ann Duffy. With a chronology and guide to further reading, this book is aimed at students and poetry enthusiasts wanting to deepen their knowledge of some of the finest modern poets.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This is an immensely rich collection in terms of the range of poets discussed, thematic focus and critical perspectives. The authors are equally alert to history and politics, on the one hand, and questions of form, style and aesthetics, on the other. In so doing, the collection reveals both the distinctiveness of individual poetic voices and a variety of fascinating dialogues and inter-connections between poets.' Mary Eagleton, Leeds Metropolitan University
'Highly recommended.' The Times Higher Education Supplement
"It is highly recommended for both public and academic libraries where the topic is of interest, even - and perhaps especially - where the individual poets are not otherwise represented." --Feminist Collections: A Quarterly of Women's Studies Resources (Volume 33. Summer 2012)
