Another irreplaceable woman’s voice taken from us much too soon. If you’ve never read any of her writing, or indeed not heard of her before today, please take some time for your self and explore what she had to say.
‘The connections between and among women are the most feared, the most problematic, and the most potentially transforming force on the planet.’
‘Poetry is above all a concentration of the power of language, which is the power of our ultimate relationship to everything in the universe.’
