Author: Ph.D., Scott Ferguson German Scott Bennett German
The Pleasures of Woman, quite simply, is a book of medicine for human sexuality. It is a salve to cleanse and heal our wounds of confusion and anger, and dull sleepy our fears and self-obsessions. It is an intimate conversation from the heart to women and men of all ages, who have the heart to understand. It is a new erection of the classics in man, by rediscovering the nature and imaginations which make him classic. It is a mythological dream of woman, spawned from the alphabet of Adam's affections, and the depths of all men's needs. It is poetry written from and for the deepest, most sacred parts of the human being. Words that tenderly nourish the unblossomed flower of man's purest and sweetest sense of innocence and intimacy, by empowering, exalting and adoring women's most natural, intoxicating, and surreal dimensions of femininity; lavishing upon women the savory epiphanies and rapturous delights of eternal womanhood; and creating a world of joy, brightness, peace, and hope.

charts - for the first time - the otherwise invisible tradition of women's epic." "The Female Homer provides a powerful research tool through its checklist of women's epic poems, and a vital starting point for investigations and new conversations in the field. For scholars in Comparative Literature and English Studies who are already at work on questions of women's epic, the recovery of women's texts, and the place of women's writings within traditionally masculine canons of literature, The Female Homer sketches and consolidates the field. Beyond these specialists, scholars in all fields of literary study, once they clear their initial shock at the existence of women's epic, will be engaged by the kinds of texts these women poets have produced.

Here are poems that wrestle with angels, that ask Who is holy, What is sacred? These are women's poems that speak also to men. Poems that honor friend and family and lover. Poems that honor both God and Goddess, as well as the human creature, the beauty of nature, the precious small gifts and actions of everyday life. Poems that honor other artists. Poems that cry out the insanity of war and speak for peace: inner peace, peace between you & me, peace among nations. Plaudits for Ethelsdattar's first book, Earthwalking & other poems, Xlibris.

In the 1960s and ‘70s the long forgotten and forbidden Great Goddess roused herself from millennia of slumber and took possession of young women’s imaginations. That cast out She offered a Faustian bargain—She would rip you out of your narrow domesticated self image, thrust you into the wilds of sex, power and creativity, initiate you into the mysteries of Earth and Starry Heaven, but you would owe Her your soul. A generation of women followed Her. Some knew her as Feminism, some knew her as the Deep Feminine, many as both. The Faust Woman Poems trace one woman’s Faustian adventures through that time. Most of a lifetime later the Great Goddess returns to the poet. As oceans rise and species die She demands Her due.

Based on extensive archival research in England and the United States, English Women's Poetry, 1649-1714 argues that ideas about women's voices and women's communities were crucial to the shaping of an English national literature after the civil wars. Women enter print culture - as poets and as women - by situating their writing in defence of embattled monarchy. Women poets are especially fascinated with the figure of the female monarch (both real and mythic).
This book of poems was inspired by my wife who lost three of her loved ones in 2019.

This book of poems was inspired by my wife who lost three of her loved ones in 2019. The loss of her twenty-seven-year-old son (which is my stepson) was the hardest. I didn't know what to say to her at the time, because what do you say to a mother who has to bury her child. So instead I pen a poem for her. I wrote ten more poems in hopes that they will inspire other women that may be facing some challenging situations in their life as well. I hope you enjoy reading and sharing these poems with others.
