Nice collection of poems I have mostly read elsewhere and some others that were new to me. As far as anthologies go, it was fairly representative of a range of woman poets.

Found a few new poets to read, which is a good result from reading an anthology. But only truly appreciated/enjoyed 6 of the 100: (1) Self and the Otherself by Queen Elizabeth I, (2) from Eves Apologie by Emilia Lanier, (3) Mirth and Melancholy by Margaret Cavendish, (4) Romantics by Liesl Mueller, (5) Visiting a dead man on a summer day by Marge Piercy, and (6) from Circe/Mud Poems by Margaret Atwood.
