  Germaine Greer Monday 29 October 2001  
Germaine Greer , the academic author and critic has edited an anthology of women's poetry from the sixteenth century to the present day in the English language.

The poets range from Eleanor Wyatt to Christina Rossetti to Anne Sexton, and all are written from the point of view of a woman.
The poems offer a huge variety of female preoccupation - from rueful reflections on love to the complications of childbirth.
Germaine joins Jenni to explain why she says 'every reader will find something to deplore'.
101 Poems by 101 Women edited by Germaine Greer (Faber and Faber, ISBN: 0571207340, £9.99).
