Product Description

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.
