Item description for Appetite: Food as Metaphor: An Anthology of Women Poets (Boa Anthology Series, No. 1) by Phyllis Stowell...

In poems from as varied women poets as Jane Kenyon, Lucille Clifton, and Anne Sexton, food emerges as a re-occurring and central metaphor in the way women live, in the pulse of the everyday, and as a vehicle for the exotic. From coffee to caviar, from potatoes to dandelions-even in hunger and anorexia-the metaphors of food have worked like yeast in the imagination of these poets.

Preface by Chef Charlotte Turgeon.

Phyllis Stowell initiated the Saint Mary's College of California MFA program. She is a former Fellow of the Camargo Foundation and was a Dewitt Wallace/Reader's Digest Fellow at the MacDowell Colony.

Her publications include Assent to Solitude, Who Is Alice?, and Sequence and Consequence, an Alchemical Journal. She publishes poetry, criticism, and poetry reviews.

Jeanne Foster is a Professor in the Graduate Liberal Studies program at Saint Mary's College of California. Her critical book, A Music of Grace, explores the vision of the sacred in contemporary American poetry, and her poetry collection, A Blessing of Safe Travel, won the Quarterly Review of Literature Award in Poetry. Her poems have appeared in Triquarterly, Hudson Review, North American Review, Ploughshares, and other journals.
