The list author says: "Here is a list of my favorite female poets that I return to time and time again. This list is by no means incomplete and if I expanded it to the TOP 75 Great female Poets (not just contemporaries), this list would include May Swenson, Plath, Lynne Knight, Mona Van Duyn, Martha Collins, Alvarez, W. Barker, de los Santos, Marge Piercy, Stanton, Atwood, Hacker, Boland, Nye, Millay (master of the sonnet!), Clampitt, Giovanni, Bogan, H.D. Stevie Smith, Rita Dove, Kizer, Wilner, Rukeyser, Kumin, Teasdale, Lourde, Sexton, Levertov, Gallagher, Schnackenberg, mcPherson, Gregg, Rosetti, Marianne Moore, Spark, Ai, and so many more. So check those female poets out as well!
I tried to put them in order, but again this is nearly an impossible task as who can really say what is the difference between the best #3 vs the best #4 or #14?"
"The Complete Poems might even be better. If you do not read Russian, you will have to settle for the translations which will still make you want to read more of her work! (Contemporary? You read and be the judge!)"
