Masks Outrageous and Austere: Culture, Psyche, and Persona in Modern Women Poets
Concentrating on Amy Lowell, Sara Teasdale, Elinor Wylie, H.D., Edna St. Vincent Millay, and Louise Bogan, Walker analyzes the highly stylized self-images—from Lowell's androgyne to Millay's body-conscious romantic—projected by these women who attempted to renegotiate the terms upon which they could function successfully as poets.
