Set to be the ‘Must-Have Feminist Poetry Anthology for 2018’, Macmillan has announced the publication of ‘She Is Fierce: Brave, Bold and Beautiful Poems by Women‘, an empowering new collection of poems available in Hardback from 6 September 2018.
Edited by Ana Sampson, She is Fierce: Brave, Bold and Beautiful Poems by Women is a powerful collection of 150 poems that celebrates the centenary of women’s suffrage at a time when we are still having important conversations about women’s right to be treated as equals in all areas.
From suffragettes to school girls, from spoken word superstars to civil rights activists, from aristocratic ladies to kitchen maids, these are the voices that deserve to be heard.
The collection contains an inclusive array of voices, from modern and innovative poets such as Maya Angelou, Nikita Gill, Carol Ann Duffy and Grace Nichols to classic beloved poets from previous centuries including Emily Dickinson, Christina Rossetti and Charlotte Bronte. Each poem is accompanied by a short biography of each poet. This stunning lyrical collection is an essential addition to any bookshelf.
