Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. The poetry of Judy Grahn is an underground legend among women in this country. She has reawakened language and the shapes of poetry to a feminist perspective to speak of what it means to be a powerful woman in this world, at this time. Extremely varied in form and emotional color but always rooted in everyday language and common female experience, this is poetry people memorize and put to use, dance to, learn from and argue with, laugh and cry over, and whisper to themselves in hard times. All five of Grahn's chapbooks are included in this volume. Grahn is a lecturer and poet who lives in San Francisco.
