    I bought this book as a gift and loved it so much that I bought another for myself!

  2. Lee Bennett Hopkins

    A timely, beautifully collected work. The book of women’s voices should be heard by men, too!

  3. JMM

    This book is inspiring, honoring, reflective, funny, poignant, inspirational…in other words, a perfect book for yourself or a gift for that special woman in your life.

    Notwithstanding our digital world, how I love the physical feel of this poetry book! ‘The Woman in this Poem’: Women’s Voices in Poetry – an anthology published by Plumleaf Press and edited by Georgia Heard.

    The cover is gorgeous – a woman’s profile of head and bare shoulders – chin raised, mouth open emitting a stream of life’s emotional experience, raw and beautiful. The artwork in this anthology is stunning in its bold colours, tranquil patterns, and pages of splendid simplicity. The volume is worthy of elegant coffee-table display, but even more so, it beckons to be picked up and cherished for the verses inside.

    In her Introduction, Heard states that she chose poems “that might affirm our experiences and feelings and make us feel less alone.” This book is structured by themes, and as Heard intends, there are remarkable pieces of emotion therein which remind us of our shared humanity. I also loved the diversity of talent and reading the biographies of the authors, several whose works are familiar to me, but greatly enjoyed being introduced to poets new to me, as well. Some in translation. Simply lovely.
