The best short poems by women writers

These are ten of the best short poems by women poets from over three centuries of English poetry (and by ‘English’ we mean ‘written in the English language’ – several of the names on this list are American). We’ve interpreted ‘short’ here to mean very short: only one is as long as 14 lines, and many of the others are no longer than ten lines, which we feel is pretty short for a poem. We hope you enjoy this selection. Click on the title of each short poem to read it.

Η σχέση επιστήμης και φιλοσοφίας είναι διαλεκτική. Πρόκειται για ένα συνεκτικό δίπολο, το βασικό δίπολο της έρευνας και της γνώσης, που τα δυο του μέρη αλληλοεξαρτώνται και αλληλοσυγκρούονται αλλά και διαμορφώνουν μια σύνθεση ομορφιάς και αρμονίας.
