Slip-shod sibyls : recognition, rejection and the woman poet by Germaine Greer ( Book )
10 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 437 libraries worldwide
"The term 'slip-shod sibyls' is adapted from a gibe of Alexander Pope. It encapsulates the common contempt for the half-educated women who dared to expose themselves in the literary market-place, convinced that they were born poets." "In this collection Germaine Greer argues that the problem is not that women who wrote poetry in English before 1900 were ignored but that, when most women were unable to express themselves in written form at all, and only a tiny minority of them dared to write in metre, the female poet was given undue attention, flattered and exploited only to be rejected and humiliated in her own lifetime and forgotten by posterity." "She argues that as much as we yearn to have women's poetry seriously studied in schools and universities, what has come down to us is not worthy of inclusion in the canon, for all kinds of reasons. In many cases the texts are inauthentic and cannot be relied upon to represent women's work or women's sensibility. In virtually all cases the poetry is intensely derivative and cannot be evaluated by readers who are unfamiliar with the poets' models."--BOOK JACKET.

Race relations are one of the most fraught issues in the world. Almost everywhere in the world where different races rub against each other there is racism and friction.

In this essay, Germaine Greer shows how it could, should and must be different. The problem is not the Aborigines but the ʻsettler societyʼ and what it has done to the country.
