Experiments in Poetic Biography: Feminist Threads in Contemporary Long Form Poetry

Experiments in Poetic Biography: Feminist Threads in Contemporary Long Form Poetry <p>Abstract:</p><p> This essay examines long poems by contemporary women poets that represent examples of “poetic biography,” to consider the diversity of ways in which feminist poets are writing/documenting the lives of historical figures. I am chiefly concerned with investigating the potential for poetry to expand the field of biographical writing in relation to the female historical voice (as both the writer and the written). </p> http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Biography University of Hawai'I Press
