The little space : poems selected and new, 1968-1998 by Alicia Ostriker( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this selection of poems from thirty years of a distinguished writing career, we see the growth of a poet's mind, heart, and spirit as Ostriker struggles to love "this wounded / World that we cannot heal, that is our bride." Whether she probes the meaning of childhood, family, marriage, and motherhood, or art, history, politics, and God; whether she is celebrating sexuality or confronting mortality, the poet includes "whatever I can grasp of human experience within my art - the good and beautiful, the evil and chaotic. I tell my students that they must write what they are afraid to write; and I attempt to do so myself."
The imaginary lover by Alicia Ostriker( Book )

16 editions published between 1986 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Winner of the 1987 William Carlos Williams Award presented by the Poetry Society of AmericaWith The Imaginary Lover, Alicia Suskin Ostriker takes her place among the most striking and original poets whose work is informed by feminist consciousness. Her characterization of the best poetry by women, in the New York Times Book Review, aptly describes this book: "intimate rather than remote, passionate rather than distant, defying divisions between emotion and intellect, private and public, life and art, writer and reader." To read her poems is to "discover not only more of what it means to be a woman but more of what it means to be human."
Feminist revision and the Bible by Alicia Ostriker( Book )

10 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Extends the feminist examination of western literature to the founding document of patriarchal culture, the Bible. At the same time, it re-thinks certain customary assumptions about feminism and about the Bible, in the light of poetic 'readings' of Biblical texts by 19th and 20th century women writers. It proposes that women writers relate to the Bible in complex ways which both critique biblical misogyny and stem directly from elements of transgressive writing within the Biblical text, suggesting that feminist reinterpretations of the Bible constitute an inevitable consequence of radical spiritual values at the core of scripture itself

The nakedness of the fathers : biblical visions and revisions by Alicia Ostriker( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In her introduction, "Entering the Tents," Ostriker defines the need to struggle against a tradition in which women have been silenced and disempowered - and to recover the female power buried beneath the surface of the biblical texts. In "The Garden," she reinterprets the mythically complex stories of Creation. Then she considers the stories of "The Fathers," from Abraham and Isaac to Moses, David, and Solomon - and their wives, mothers, and sisters. In "The Return of the Mothers," she begins with a radical new interpretation of the book of Esther, includes a meditation on the silenced wife of Job and the idea of justice, and concludes with a fable on the death of God and a prayer to the Shekhinah, the feminine aspect of God. Ostriker refuses to dismiss the Bible as meaningless to women. Instead, in this angry, eloquent, visionary book, she attempts to recover what is genuinely sacred in these sacred texts
