Abstract:

"Laura (Riding) Jackson, the important American poet and thinker, emerged as a powerful literary voice in the 1920s with the publication of her earliest poems, stories, and criticism. In 1941, at the height of her fame as a poet, Laura (Riding) Jackson turned her attention exclusively to prose writings about language, sexuality, morality, and other subjects of general human concern.".

"Finally, here in one portable volume are the key texts from the full range of this eminent author's work. Included from the early writings are a generous selection of the poems, chapters from such major works as A Survey of Modernist Poetry (with Robert Graves), Anarchism Is Not Enough, and The Word "Woman" and Other Related Writings, along with four complete stories from Progress of Stories and the striking preface to her 1938 Collected Poems. The editor has also compiled an ample and representative selection of Laura (Riding) Jackson's later writings."--BOOK JACKET.
