"Should I Stay or Should I Go?": Metaphors of Motion in Contemporary
American Women's Poetry

Being able to move, and being constrained from moving, have always been
important metaphors for female poets. Thus it comes as no surprise that
motion is a recurring theme in women's poetry in the 20th and 21st
centuries. This panel will examine how contemporary American women poets
use metaphors of motion in their work and what that motion -- or lack of
it -- says about the lives of women as experienced within their poetry.
