Detailed Description
***Out of Print, No copies available****
Shakespeare's Sisters: Women Writers Bridge Five Centuries has been expressly commissioned to complement the Folger Shakespeare Library's winter 2012 exhibition, Shakespeare's Sisters: Voices of English and European Women Writers 1500-1700. Showcasing the Folger's rich holdings of works by English and Continental women who began to find limited publication roughly around Shakespeare's time, the exhibition celebrates both the Folger's ongoing scholarship and elements of the library's annual Shakespeare's Sisters seminar. 
The contemporary women writers represented in the Shakespeare's Sisters chapbook have produced a range of imaginative and original poetry and fiction showing a sense of real connection to their pioneering predecessors. Some have engaged in literary conversation with individual women writers with whom they empathize; others have chosen to bring into the present the context in which women have always labored to write. We hope that this dialogue across centuries will capture the public's imagination and build fresh connections within literature and the humanities.
Edited by Gigi Bradford and Louisa Newlin with original work by Eavan Boland, Jane Hirshfield, Rita Dove, Linda Gregerson, Jane Smiley, Rosanna Warren, Maxine Kumin, Elizabeth Nunez, Linda Pastan, Heather McHugh, Jacqueline Osherow, Elizabeth Alexander, and Marie Howe.

ISBN 978-0-9629254-4-3, Paperback.  Copyright Folger Shakespeare Library, 2012.  52 print pages;  No illustrations.
