There are many notorious cases of poets refusing to be included in anthologies of women’s poetry, or publically claiming they dislike the connotations of the term. One such occasion was in a 2006 article in Poetry where three poets, Meghan O’Rourke, J. Allyn Rosser, and Eleanor Wilner noted ‘we all concur that we ought to abolish the unpleasant term “women’s poetry”’. It was against this context of competing, confusing and often damning commentary that I asked three women poets to speak with me about the issue of ‘women’s poetry’.
