The gentler sex or the deadlier of the species. Between these two definitions of the female gender lies a collection of some of the most beautiful verse ever written. For much of history women have been seen rather than heard. In this volume poets of great depth and feeling express themselves on a range of topics and in ways that perhaps only a woman can. Here in Volume 5 we bring you works from Christina Georgina Rossetti to Elinor Wylie by way of Charlotte Smith, Sara Teasdale, Katharine Tynan, Ella Wheeler Wilcox, Dorothy Wordsworth and many others. Our readers include Ghizela Rowe and Nigel Planer.
