Drawing upon poststructuralist and feminist theory, as well as interviews with some of the poets discussed, Simpson (English, U. of Texas) examines the political and epistemological implications of women "language poets" and argues that "by fore grounding the processes of language... the poets explore the relations among knowledge, philosophy, and gender, thus (re)uniting art with philosophy, and both with social critique". Among the poets discussed are Susan Howe, Lyn Hejinan, Gertrude Stein, Mina Loy, and Mei-mei Besenbrugge.
