Janet Montefiore is a feminist critic and authority on women's poetry and here she defines the terms for debate on identity, gender and tradition by exploring what it has meant to write in the 20th century. She covers many neglected topics, for example, women poets of World War I and forgotten women poets of the 1930s as well as engaging closely with admired writers, such as Elizabeth Barrett-Browning, D.J. Enright, Kipling and Sylvia Townsend Warner. The work also examines the constructions of gendered identity in a variety of contexts, for example poetic ambiguity, girls' school stories and cookery books.
