"It is very important in society who get to be the poets. Until about 1980 women poets were universally thought to be a bit odd. Edith Sitwell, Stevie Smith, Emily Dickinson were typical recluses or eccentrics who lived without men. Younger women who didnt grow up against that prejudiced background, have no idea how awful it was. We won't even start on the Ted and Sylvia myth but you can see how it fits."
