Poems That Make Grown Women Cry

poems-that-make-grown-women-cry-9781501121852_hrFollowing the success of their anthology Poems That Make Grown Men Cry, father-and-son team Anthony and Ben Holden, working with Amnesty International, have asked the same revealing question of 100 remarkable women. What poem has moved you to tears? The poems chosen range from the eighth century to today, from Rumi and Shakespeare to Sylvia Plath, W.H. Auden to Carol Ann Duffy, Pablo Neruda and Derek Walcott to Imtiaz Dharker and Warsan Shire. Their themes range from love and loss, through mortality and mystery, war and peace, to the beauty and variety of nature. Alongside Dame Judi Dench, Joan Baez, Yoko Ono and 100 other extraordinary women, Joyce DiDonato selects the poem that always makes her cry: Emily Dickinson’s “The World Feels Dusty” to share in this unique collection, that delivers private insights into the minds of women whose writing, acting, and thinking are admired around the world.
