Description

Edited by poet Rishma Dunlop, White Ink is a unique collection of poems on mothers and motherhood, by some of the finest poets of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Unsentimental, unflinching, and edgy, White Ink registers the social and political changes, as well as the imaginative pulse, of recent history through the figure of the mother: a powerful, recurring, and central symbol in contemporary poetry. Spanning multiple cultures, ethnicities, genders, and languages, White Ink is a landmark anthology. Poets include Ann Sexton, Sylvia Plath, Alicia Ostriker, Joy Harjo, Sharon Olds, Gwendolyn Brooks, Gwendolyn McEwan, Patrick Lane, Lorna Crozier, Allen Ginsberg, Irving Layton, Priscila Uppal, Bronwen Wallace, Maxine Kumin, Sandra Gilbert, Grace Paley, John Barton, Samuel Menashe, Marilyn Hacker, Steven Heighton, John Terpstra, John Barton, C.D. Wright, Natasha Trethewey, Rita Dove, Adrienne Rich, Nicole Brossard, Annie Finch, Marie Ponsot, Mahmoud Darwish, Fady Joudah, Naomi Shihab Nye, Deema Shehabi, Claudia Rankine, Ingrid de Kok, Gabeba Baderoon, Carolyn Forché, Mary Karr, Philip Levine, Jean Valentine, Meena Alexander, Goran Simic, and many others.
