Editor Shaw's wit and wise choices, ranging from Virginia Woolf, Jane Austen, Vanessa Bell, Willa Cather to Denise Levertov, Doris Lessing, Mina Loy and Maya Angelou substantiates her thesis that is articulated by Virginia Woolf in A Room Of One's Own, "As for her coming without that preparation, without that effort on our part, without that determination that when she is born again she shall find it possible to live and write her poetry, that we cannot expect, for that would be impossible. But I maintain that she would come if we worked for her, and that so to work, even in poverty and obscurity, is worth while." 8vo. 256 pp. Fine in fine dustwrapper.
