About this book

This book focuses on the role of the city, and its processes of mutual transformation, in poetry by experimental women writers. Readings of their work are placed in the context of theories of urban space, while new visions of the contemporary city and its global relationships are drawn from their innovations in language and form.

Reviews



'Contemporary Women's Poetry and Urban Space is a fascinating read with an excellent balance of general theoretical insight and close textual analysis of some very challenging work. Skoulding draws together disparate practices and theories to weave together a picture of innovative, gendered poetry and poetics developed by a range of international poets in response to the city. Her wide reference helps her achieve a global, though not totalizing, perspective and it is instructive and inspiring to see these poets brought together within the covers of one book.' - Harriet Tarlo, Sheffield Hallam University, UK
