I first discovered Ella Wheeler Wilcox's Poems of Passion on my grandparents' shelf many years ago. Now the book sits on my shelf. I love that I have a book from 1883 in my home. I love that it has passed through so many hands. (There's a handwritten inscription in the front from 1892!) Most of all, I love that the poems still speak to me today. Some of my personal favorites:
"The Common Lot"
I especially love the poems where the voice is that of a strong woman, almost feminist in tone.
