Written in journal form you will find transparent “muses” or thoughts on the authors past choices. In these retraced memories as the author seeks emotional healing for herself, her desire shifts to share that growth with others. Over and over her muses push the readers to face their wounds and to destroy the devils within themselves. From the 1st Muse to the 70th Muse one can feel the author’s growth from a wounded soul to coaching others over the finish line.

The stories of thirty-three women who enthralled society's artistic geniuses and thus inspired the creation of some of the greatest works of the past two centuries. American Lee Miller was a successful model before traveling to Paris to become the apprentice, lover, and muse of Man Ray; Nancy Cunard, British writer, heiress, and political activist, was a lover to numerous members of the twentieth century's art and literary circles, including Ezra Pound and T.S. Eliot; Parisian-born artist and poet Dora Maar had a profound influence on her infamous lover, Pablo Picasso. While the lives of these women were very different in most aspects, they shared the ability to awaken fervor in and to influence the work of their Pygmalion painters, writers, or photographers. The vision of the artist and his muse remains an integral part of our notion of artistic creation, and the collaboration of these interwoven destinies continues to fascinate historians, art appreciators, feminists, and general readers alike.

A fascinating examination of the ambitions and friendships of a talented group of midcentury women artists Farewell to the Muse documents what it meant to be young, ambitious, and female in the context of an avant-garde movement defined by celebrated men whose backgrounds were often quite different from those of their younger lovers and companions. Focusing on the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s, Whitney Chadwick charts five female friendships among the Surrealists to show how Surrealism, female friendship, and the experiences of war, loss, and trauma shaped individual women’s transitions from someone else’s muse to mature artists in their own right. Her vivid account includes the fascinating story of Claude Cahun and Suzanne Malherbe in occupied Jersey, as well as the experiences of Lee Miller and Valentine Penrose at the front line. Chadwick draws on personal correspondence between women, including the extraordinary letters between Leonora Carrington and Leonor Fini during the months following the arrest and imprisonment of Carrington’s lover Max Ernst and the letter Frida Kahlo shared with her friend and lover Jacqueline Lamba years after it was written in the late 1930s. This history brings a new perspective to the political context of Surrealism as well as fresh insights on the vital importance of female friendship to its progress.

In this challenging 1990 study, Donna Landry shows how an understanding of the remarkable but neglected careers of laboring-class women poets in the eighteenth century provokes a reassessment of our ideas concerning the literature of the period. Poets such as the washerwoman Mary Collier, the milkwoman Ann Yearsley, the domestic servants Mary Leapor and Elizabeth Hands, the dairywoman Janet Little, and the slave Phyllis Wheatley can be seen adapting the conventions of polite verse for the purposes of social criticism. Some of their strategies relate to earlier texts, revealing ideological blind spots in the tropes of male poets. Elsewhere, they made interesting innovations in poetic form. Mary Leapor's 'Crumble Hall', for instance, by attending to sexual politics, extends the critique of aristocratic privilege in the country-house poem beyond that of Pope and Crabbe. In Ann Yearsley's verse, landscape description, historical narrative, and philosophical meditation are infused with political comment. Historically important, technically impressive and often aesthetically innovative, the poetic achievements of these plebeian women writers constitute an exciting literary discovery.

This volume offers diverse perspectives on the recently published "Memorandum" of Martha Moulsworth, a fascinating woman who in 1632 wrote one of the first autobiographical poems in the English language. Moulsworth's poem, which issues a startlingly early and radical call for educational equality, provides one of our best "inside views" of the life of a Renaissance woman, and the poem is also one of the few writings about widowhood written by an early modern widow. Yet the poem is also highly sophisticated as a work of art, and it has already proven its appeal to a wide variety of readers, including both beginning students and noted scholars and critics. The present book builds on the first edition of Moulsworth's poem - "My Name Was Martha": A Renaissance Woman's Autobiographical Poem (Locust Hill, 1993). The new volume offers extensive additional biographical information about Moulsworth herself, and it also presents readings of the poem as a poem and as a piece of autobiography. The book also considers such broader issues as the myth of the muses, the role of education in the Renaissance, the status of wives and widows, and the ideals and realities of early modern marriage. Moulsworth's poem emerges as an even richer work when viewed from so many different perspectives. Moulsworth, however, is hardly the only Renaissance woman writer examined in this volume. Many essayists use Moulsworth as a touchstone for discussing numerous other authors, including such figures as Roger Ascham, Anne Bradstreet, Margaret Cavendish (the Duchess of Newcastle), Lady Anne Clifford, An Collins, Queen Elizabeth I, Elizabeth Grymston, Lady Elizabeth Langham, Aemilia Lanyer, Bathsua Makin, Elizabeth Melville, Richard Mulcaster, Katherine Philips, Mary Sidney (the Countess of Pembroke), Rachel Speght, Hester Wiat, and Lady Mary Wroth (to name a few).

Why is the memoir genre so important? What is it that drives us to tell our own stories? The ancient Greek myth of Goddess Memory, and her daughters, the Muses, offers new ways to re-enter the stories of our lives and shape them in surprising ways. Mnemosyne's birthing of the Muses underscores her commitment to express all of the facets of her personal story: grief, joy, love, body, breath, history, spirituality, reverie, and humor. The memoirist follows Mnemosyne's imaginal lineage in crafting all memoirs. Memories live in matter, in the very cells of our bodies. Writing our life stories allows us to consider the content of our experiences, the plurality of perspectives from which we can choose to shape them, and the use that we want to make of them. We may choose to write for many reasons, psychological, physical, and cultural healing being just a few. This book suggests the exploration of an imaginable field is possible when we look at how figures from Greek mythology continue to inspire contemporary life writing.
