Yet in Shorewords, Susan A. C. Rosen has compiled an imaginative and beautifully balanced anthology of selections from these and more than forty other important writers connected by their love for the coastline. Edna St. Vincent Millays Low Tide, E. Annie Proulxs Cast Away, Harriet Beecher Stowes Naomi, and Ursula Le Guins Text are among the diverse pieces that reveal the writers common fascination with the people and places at waters edge. Organized thematically, Shorewords reflects womens experiences of living along the coast through a wide range of material, including short fiction, poetry, and excerpts from novels and memoirs. All reveal the rich response to shorelines women writers have expressed--and continue to express--in poetry and prose.Includes: Jennifer Ackerman * Nancy Allen * Gloria Anzaldua * Kerry Neville Bakken * Dorothy Balano * Andrea Barrett * Doris Betts * Kate Braverman * Mary Louisa Burtch Brewster * Mary Parker Buckles * Rachel L.
