Edited by Alan Michael Parker and Mark Willhardt
An anthology of poems, with a co-written critical apparatus, The Routledge Anthology of Cross-Gendered Verse presents women writing in the voice of men and men in the voice of women, from Chaucer to the present. The book was honored at the 1996 MLA convention, where the editors were featured guests.
“By presenting old material in a new context, by constructing hitherto unseen genealogies through unexpected conclusions and strategic omissions, anthologies self-consciously construct and revise Literature itself. The Routledge Anthology of Cross-Gendered Verse is an example of anthology-making at its best…” —The Boston Book Review
