This anthology presents a wide cross-section of women poets and there's bound to be something for everyone. It's arranged roughly in chronological order, from the 16th to the 20th century. I found the poems easier to read the further I got. All are written from a woman's point of view, and for this woman reader, it was heartening to see these sometimes obscure but diverse women's voices through the ages affirmed and given space on the page.
