In this award-winning anthology, the editors grouped almost 200 poems into pairs to demonstrate the different ways in which male and female poets see the same topics. How women see men, how boys see girls, and how we all see the world -- often in very different ways, but suprisingly, wonderfully, sometimes very much the same.
For this fascinating anthology of modern poetry, the editors grouped 196 poems into pairs, to demonstrate the different ways in which male and female poets see the same topics. Surprisingly, wonderfully, the end result shows as many similarities as differences. Even readers who normally don't like poetry may be intrigued by the thoughtful, accessible gems in this diverse collection. In a pointer review, Kirkus wrote "this is a wonder"; in a starred review, School Library Journal called it "a rich source for thought and discussion."
