Ragged Sky Press, edited by Ellen Foos, Vasiliki Katsarou, and Ruth O’Toole, 2009

Edited by Vasiliki Katsarou, Ruth O’Toole, and Ellen Foos, Eating Her Wedding Dress: A Collection of Clothing Poems brings together one hundred celebrated and distinctive voices, including internationally acclaimed poets such as Kim Addonizio, Margaret Atwood, Billy Collins, Elaine Equi, Jorie Graham, Maxine Kumin, Paul Muldoon, and Charles Simic, to speak about clothing as object of desire, as memento, and as metaphor for the body. Arranged into four parts, this anthology includes poems of self-presentation and identity, poems of alteration and transformation, poetry about the woven word, and poems invoking the talismanic quality of clothing.
