Poetry. LGBT Studies. Jewish Studies. In this land of MILK AND HONEY, poems flow. Contemporary Jewish, lesbian poets address an array of experiences—relationships between and among women, family relationships, politics, solitude, ethical responsibilities, history, solidarity, and community. MILK AND HONEY features beloved poets like Ellen Bass, Robin Becker, Elana Dykewomon, Marilyn Hacker, Eleanor Lerman, Joan Nestle, Lesléa Newman and Ellen Orleans, as well as new and emerging voices. With language and imagery that moves from the sensual and political to the tender and serene, MILK AND HONEY explores the vibrant, complicated, exhilarating experience of being Jewish and lesbian—or queer—in the world today.
