The most comprehensive collection of Erica Jong's very readable poetry - much of it romantic, sensual, lyrical, and witty. Some poems (like Becoming a Nun, my favorite) are outstanding, and read aloud are music to the ears; others are awkward, filling space. Selections are included from a dozen of her books of poetry, stretching from the late 60s to the late 80s -- in her case stretching from late adolescence/early adulthood to middle age - all in all 375 pages of her poetry. Recommended.
