In She Walks in Beauty, Caroline Kennedy has once again
marshaled the gifts of our greatest poets to pay a very
personal tribute to the human experience, this time to the
complex and fascinating subject of womanhood. Inspired by
her own reflections on more than fifty years of life as a
young girl, a woman, a wife, and a mother, She Walks in
Beauty draws on poetry's eloquent wisdom to ponder the many
joys and challenges of being a woman. Kennedy has divided
the collection into sections that signify to her the most
notable milestones, passages, and universal experiences in a
woman's life, and she begins each of these sections with an
introduction in which she explores and celebrates the most
important elements of life's journey.
The collection includes works by Elizabeth Bishop, Sharon
Olds, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Mary Oliver, Pablo Neruda, W.
H. Auden, Adrienne Rich, Sandra Cisneros, Anne Sexton, W. S.
Merwin, Dorothy Parker, Queen Elizabeth I, Lucille Clifton,
Naomi Shahib Nye, and W. B. Yeats. Whether it's falling in
love, breaking up, friendship, marriage, motherhood, or
growing old, She Walks in Beauty is a priceless resource for
anyone, male or female, who wants a deeper understanding and
appreciation of what it means to be a woman.
