More Spice Than Sugar: Poems About Feisty Females

More Spice Than Sugar

Poems About Feisty Females

Compiled by Lillian Morrison

Divided into three sections, "When I Am Me," "She's a Winner," and "Against the Odds," Morrison's selections tell of real and imagined girls and women, famous or nameless, but all true-to-life. Whether it's a poet writing about herself (Marianne Moore's "I May, I Might, I Must"; Emily Dickinson's "The Poet Emily") or about others (Alice Walker's "Women," Eloise Greenfield's "Harriet Tubman," Stanley Kunitz's "Girl with Sampler"), these poems are accessible, inspiring, and challenging.
