Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0525463283, Hardcover)

"No, no, my God, we want to live!
Not watch our numbers melt away.
We want to have a better world,
We want to work--we must not die!"

Written by a 12-year-old Czechoslovakian poet, Eva Pickova, from the Terezin Concentration Camp, this verse represents one young woman's will to survive amid oppression and tragic circumstances. Editor Neil Philip has collected the work of various 20th-century girl and women poets around the world who write of their personal lives and in so doing, reach women everywhere. Radical, witty, sad, curious, these 61 poems reflect a diverse group of voices, emotions, cultures. Well-known writers such as Adrienne Rich, Dorothy Parker, and Sylvia Plath grace the pages, as do less familiar but no less mighty poets from Japan to Nigeria. Stunning black and white photography accompanies each section, which is divided into intriguing categories: "Dear Female Heart," "News of a Baby," "A Freedom Song," "Domestic Economy," "Power," "I Live with a Bullet," and "The Old Woman Gathered." A beautiful gift and celebration of strength for the young women of the world. (Ages 13 and older) --Emilie Coulter
