Holding Our Own
The Selected Poems of Ann Stanford
Ann Stanford

Within a decade of her death, each of Ann Stanford's books had slipped out of print, and her final manuscript—completed just before she died—remained unpublished. Through the effort of two former students, poets Maxine Scates and David Trinidad, this creeping silence has finally ended with the publication of a major selected poems. Like her fellow Californian Robinson Jeffers, Stanford's poems are consumed by natural landscape and lost nature. Yet she is an urban poet, a poet of Los Angeles, a poet who, during her lifetime, published ten books, including poetry, criticism, a translation of The Bhagavad Gita, and the first major anthology of women's poetry.
