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.
