In Not a Muse more than 100 poets from 24 countries explore the rich and complex lives of women in a post-feminist era.The result is a richly satisfying anthology for, and about, the 21st-century woman.Vibrant verse from Margaret Atwood, Sharon Olds, Erica Jong, Lorna Crozier, Elisabeth Harvor, Rati Saxena, Anindita Sengupta, Eileen R. Tabios, Louise Ho, Agnes Lam, Fatima Naoot, Pascale Petit, Rose Flint, Luisa A. Igloria, Michelle Cahill, Menna Elfyn—and many others.”Creator, lover, freedom fighter, explorer, home maker, myth maker… As this stimulating selection of poems proves, there is no such thing as an average woman—a notion upon which we might all care to muse.”

Both books belong in all public and educational libraries and would certainly augment a private collection.
