This brings back a memory or two! ( )

If you have no other anthology of women's contemporary poetry on your shelf, this is the one to have. Comprehensive and wonderfully annotated with biographies, this collection will be used again and again to explore and augment one's lists of favorite poets. Reads like a history of women in the 20th century in poetic form. ( )

When I wrote of the women in their dances and wildness, it was a mask,
on their mountain, gold-hunting, singing, in orgy,
it was a mask; when I wrote of the god,
fragmented, exiled from himself, his life, the love gone down with song,
it was myself, split open, unable to speak, in exile from myself.

There is no mountain, there is no god, there is memory
of my torn life, myself split open in sleep, the rescued child
beside me among the doctors, and a word
of rescue from the great eyes.

No more masks! No more mythologies!

Now, for the first time, the god lifts his hand,
the fragments join in me with their own music.

Muriel Rukeyser, 1971
to our sisters
in jail
at war
whose lives are their poems
