In an insightful and provocative juxtaposition, Margaret Dickie examines the poetry of three preeminent women writers-Gertrude Stein, Elizabeth Bishop, and Adrienne Rich-investigating the ways in which each attempts o forge a poeic voice capable of expressing both public concerns and private interests. Although Stein, Bishop, and Rich differ by generation, poetic style, and relationship to audience, all three are twentieth-century lesbian poets whostruggle with the revelatory nature of language. All three, argues Dickie, use language to express and to conceal their experiences as they struggle with a censorship that was both culturally sanctioned and self-imposed. Dickie explores how each poet negotiates successfully and variously with the need for secrecy and the desire for openness. Includes an Index. (Key Words: Margaret Dickie, Gertrude Stein, Elizabeth Bishop, Adrienne Rich, Lesbians, Lesbianism, Literary Criticism, Women Poets, Alice B. Toklas, Susan Schweik, Tender Buttons, Ezra Pound, Emily Dickenson, Elly Bulkin, W. H. Auden).
