    I don’t really want to give this only three stars as the poetry is often as lovely as the blue-green beauty of its setting not without some acerbic wit and retrospective rage that comes with a history of famine and oppression and a continuous search for identity, but the lack of female poets (4 total amounting to ~30 pages out of the whole 35 authors and 450+ pages) is glaring.
