Innisfree Poetry Journal Takes an In-Depth Look at the Career and Works of Grace Cavalieri
In their newest edition, Innisfree Poetry Journal, takes a deep dive into the work and career of Grace Cavalieri. The article features thirteen poems by the Maryland Poetry Laureate including many featured in her Legacy Book, Other Voices, Other Lives. The poems are drawn from her historical-literary explorations of the lives of three famous women of vastly different backgrounds: Mary Wollstonecraft, Anna Nicole Smith, and Madame de Stael.
