Booklist #3

It was apparently “women poets” month for this packet. I’d never heard of any of them (no surprise, I guess, since I am such a comparative newcomer to poetry):

I wrote papers on Barresi and Rosser and read most of Grahn. I only read a little of Kasischke and wished I’d had time for more; she’s on my list to read again in the future.

Barresi was by far my favorite. I love her statement on PoetryNet (probably because it confirms so many of my own prejudices) and there’s a very nice interview with her on “The Creative Community.” If this interests you, you can read some of her work on West Branch and Poetry Daily.
