From the Publisher
Feisty, bawdy, erotic, irreverent The Virago Book of Wicked Verse is a telling commentary on women¹s ability to transform poetry into a medium of subversiveness. There are jibes at hypocrisy and prejudice, sexiness and sauciness, and a riotous overturning of the ³Lady Poet² image. With poets spanning continents and centuries, this anthology abundantly demonstrates the ways in which women can be ³wicked² by their definition and willfully so. Among the list of contributors are Maya Angelou, Margaret Atwood, Emily Dickinson, Carol Ann Duffy, Suniti Namjoshi, Grace Nichols, Dorothy Parker, Izumi Shikibu, and Stevie Smith. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
