This is a panel at NEMLA's annual conference in Boston (February 26th through March 1st). Deadline for proposals is September 15, 2008.
Being able to move, and being constrained from moving, have always been important metaphors for female poets. Thus it comes as no surprise that motion is a recurring theme in women's poetry in the 20th and 21st centuries. This panel will examine how contemporary American women poets use metaphors of motion in their work and what that motion -- or the lack of it -- says about the lives of women as experienced within their poetry.
