More Spice Than Sugar
Poems About Feisty FemalesBook - 2001
In this collection of poems celebrating high-spirited girls and women, you will meet independent spirits -- young rebels, hardy pioneers, mavericks, athletes, and heroines -- who dared difficult tasks and who show the strength of the human spirit in the face of hardship. With considerably more spice than sugar, these poems present the many faces of active, bold, brave, and sometimes funny girls. Real girls. Compiled by poet Lillian Morrison, this thoughtful and inspiring anthology speaks to the hopes, passions, and convictions of girls and young women. Some of the poets included are Emily Dickinson, Stanley Kunitz, Eve Merriam, X. J. Kennedy, Nikki Giovanni, and others. An appendix includes helpful background information.
