Synopsis

This volume features fantastical poems by Mary Coleridge, Charlotte Mew, and Sylvia Townsend Warner, accompanied by four fascinating essays and several poems by Theodora Goss in conversation with Coleridge, Mew, and Warner's poems. Goss writes that she chose to focus on these poets because "of all the poets I could have included they are the most talented among those whose talents have gone largely unrecognized." Coleridge, Mew, and Warner, Goss argues, "are only three examples of what I consider a broader phenomenon, the rest of the ice that must be present, underwater, when we see icebergs floating on a northern sea. That underwater ice is the tradition of women writing fantastical poetry." Goss's essays explore important themes of that writing, and her poems are written in conversation with Coleridge, Mew, and Warner's poems.
