Everywoman Her Own Theology: On the Poetry of Alicia Suskin OstrikerMartha Nell Smith and Julie R. Enszer, Editors 2018
Everywoman Her Own Theology: On the Poetry of Alicia Suskin Ostriker engages Ostriker's poetry from throughout her career, including her first volume Songs, her award-winning collection The Imaginary Lover, and her more recent work in the collections No Heaven, the volcano sequence, The Old Woman, the Tulip, and the Dog, and Waiting for the Light. Like her literary criticism and essays, Ostriker's poetry explores themes of feminism, Jewish life, family, and social justice.
With insightful essays—some newly written for this collection—poets and literary critics including Toi Derricotte, Daisy Fried, Cynthia Hogue, Tony Hoagland, and Eleanor Wilner illuminate and open new pathways for critical engagement with Alicia Ostriker's lifetime of poetic work.
