what’s nation got to do with it?

Dear friend and former colleague, Jane Goldman, generously asked me to contribute to her response when the journal, Contemporary Women’s Writing, asked her to write a piece on ‘Scottish Women’s Poetry’ for a Special Issue. With typical intellectual verve and disruption, Jane used this as an opportunity to ask many people to join with her in asking: ‘WHY I CHOOSE POETRY? WHAT’S NATION GOT TO DO WITH IT? WHAT’S GENDER GOT TO DO WITH IT?’ and thereby ‘deliver a multiplicitous essay-poem lubricated by [those] responses’. This is my contribution. Thank you Jane. Really looking forward to the issue.
