Some are historical figures, while others are contemporary women. Included here are native-born Americans, recent and not so recent immigrants, and residents of other countries.

    Forgotten Women is an anthology of poems with a single common theme: women. Within this anthology we remember and pay tribute to women who went unacknowledged, unnoticed, under-appreciated or were simply unmentioned. Each poem was written with love and care, making the reader wish that they could reach out into time and get to know these women firsthand. (view spoiler)[ I did have some trouble getting through a couple poems. But this had been a well rewarding book to read.

    I marked this book as "Read" because I wanted to comment on it before I read it all. I read a couple of poems a day, and they are eye openers, very moving and all well written. I went to a presentation about this book at the Salem, MA poetry Festival last year and it was there that I bought it. I highly recommend reading from this book not only to learn about the talents of the wives of famous men, but to keep us in touch with the great women who have gone unnoticed, the mundane tasks that have I marked this book as "Read" because I wanted to comment on it before I read it all.

I highly recommend reading from this book not only to learn about the talents of the wives of famous men, but to keep us in touch with the great women who have gone unnoticed, the mundane tasks that have been grossly dismissed, and the direct connection from those daily wonders to our own so called average lives. Each poem I read makes me value another woman's life, and, in doing so, cherish my own.
