Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Poet Griffin offers a collection of essays exploring the social and philosophical connections between science and nature from a feminist perspective.
Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Library Journal

Readers and fans have come to expect much from Griffin. Her last book, A Chorus of Stones (LJ 9/15/92), was a finalist for a Pulitzer and a National Book Critics Circle Award for Criticism. Griffin easily delivers with her latest work, a collection of her best essays over the past ten years, plus some new pieces. Continuing her well-established feminist quest to examine women's roles in society, Griffin eloquently addresses what she considers the nightmarish fashion in which Western culture similarly treats women and nature. She dresses up resplendent autobiographical pieces and keen social commentary with a poet's lyricism and a scholar's intellect. In "A Collaborative Intelligence," she concludes, "The task is to study the nightmare that has driven us to self-destruction." She accomplishes this task and sets readers to reflecting on how to bring Western society back from the brink. For women's studies collections.?Faye A. Chadwell, Univ. of Oregon, Eugene

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm astounded that nobody here has reviewed this fine book, a series of essays that provide an exquisite blend of the public and the personal, all woven together in a fine, sincere prose so characteristic of this author.
Although the themes dealt with here are similar to those in her A CHORUS OF STONES, these are formatted more as straight-up essays with occasional dashes of literary experimentation. They are readable and revelatory in their interconnection of women's issues, feminism, ecology, history, and contemporary events, all held together around the central theme of Eros.
