Women's Work: Modern Women Poets Writing in English
Eva Salzman and Amy Wack (ed)
Book Summary:
This is an anthology of poems written by various female authors all over the world from old to contemporary. The book has over 250 poems, written on various themes such as identity, love, family, religion, childhood and more. The chronology of poems are organised according to these themes. Emily Dickinson, Sylvia Plath, Carol Ann Duffy, Alive Oswald, Jenny Joseph and Lucille Clifton feature alongside many, many other authors.
Why I Like It:

The book is a great read for relaxation and inspiration. It is almost like a bible of women’s poetry, which does not require you to be a scholar to understand and enjoy. The poems are witty and intelligently written without trying too hard to be ‘feminist’. Instead there is something for everyone to relate to in the book’s diverse poems that reflect real life and issues.
