Sharon Olds is clearly and in your face a woman poet. As a man, I was just jolted by her candidness. Olds is a wonderful poet, but she really exposes her female side better than any woman poet I've ever read. There is one poem in hear about making love after hearing that someone in her apartment building had been raped. What goes on in that speakers head having voluntarily sex will remember the sexual violence that took place near by, well, it is just insightful, powerful, and great.
