Beginning with an extensive introduction that charts important theoretical contributions to the field, this History includes wide-ranging essays that illuminate the legacy of American women poets.

Written by a host of leading scholars, this History also devotes special attention to the lasting significance of feminist literary criticism.

How women have absorbed, commented upon, engaged with, defied, celebrated, and contributed to the varied cultures of poetry emergent alongside American modernity offers rich material and raises many questions in this History of Twentieth-Century American Poetry by Women. Indeed, questions motivate much of the literary history told here, beginning with fundamental questions of who, when, why, and how - questions of visibility and record are inseparable from questions of analysis and interpretation"--"@en ;
