Overview
The follow-up to the international bestseller, "Poems That Make Grown Men Cry," this new collection features the poetry that has moved 100 grown women to tears including personal, poignant introductions on why each selection means so much.
In "Poems That Make Grown Men Cry" father-and-son team Anthony and Ben Holden remind us that you don t have to be an academic or a postgraduate in creative writing to be moved by verse I defy anyone not to enjoy the Holdens book: It s plain fun ("The Wall Street Journal"). Now British writer (Anthony) and movie producer (Ben) reunite with Amnesty International to share "Poems That Make Grown Women Cry."
From Tina Brown to Judi Dench to Karen Joy Fowler to Erica Jong, Joyce Carol Oates to Francine Prose, Sarah Waters and Germaine Greer to Carol Ann Duffy, this collection delivers private insight into the souls of women whose writing, acting, and thinking are admired around the world. Their selections include classics by visionaries, such as Lord Bryon, Emily Dickenson, and Walt Whitman, as well as contemporary works by masters, including Sylvia Plath, Seamus Heaney, and Adrienne Rich. Each of the one hundred works features an introduction that is as powerful as the poems themselves.
This collection represents a stunning variety of aesthetic sensibilities and the full spectrum of human emotion. It also reminds us how poetry can touch minds and hearts, and how easily it will do so for all readers."
